To evaluate safety and performance metrics of the Light Adjustable Lens.

Eyes with corneal cylinder 0.75-2.00D undergoing cataract surgery are implanted with the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL: Calhoun Vision). Adjustment of lens power to correct residual spherical error and astigmatism is done 17-21 days postop, followed by an optional second adjustment, and then two treatments to lock in the lens power.

Quality of vision metrics such as incidence of glare and halo, and visual acuity after treatment with a light adjustable IOL will be reported.

Patients treated with a light adjustable IOL demonstrated improved quality of vision.
