Seeking Participants for a Clinical Study for Cataract Patients

We are excited to be clinical investigators for the IC-8 lens clinical study. The clinical study is designed to evaluate if the IC-8 lens will provide far, intermediate and near vision for patients with cataracts. 

The IC-8 lensis a clear monofocal lens with a mini-ring placed in the center. The mini-ring has an opening, or pinhole, designed to increase the range of vision by extending the focus of light rays that enter the eye.

There are two ways you may be able to participate in the clinical study:

1.) Test Group (IC-8 Lens Group) will have a standard monofocal lens implanted in the first eye. If visual requirements are met after the first lens is implanted, the IC-8 lens will be implanted into the other eye. The IC-8 lens is an investigational device and is being studied to determine if vision at all distances is clearer than with a standard monofocal lens in both eyes.

2.) Control Group (Monofocal Lens Group) will have a standard monofocal lens implanted in the first eye. If visual requirements are met, a standard monofocal lens will be implanted in the other eye.  A standard monofocal lens is designed to provide far vision, but not near or intermediate vision. 

Comparison of the two groups will help determine the improvement in vision with the IC-8 lens. Patients who participate in either group and comply with study commitments will be compensated. 

If you would like to become a volunteer participant, the first step is to contact us to setup an eye examination. Please call 845-454-1025 or email us at [email protected]. Click here for more information about the clinical study: www.ic8lensclinicalstudy.com
