Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Complications, including those related to the intravitreal injection, and adverse events, and loss of lines of best-corrected visual acuity, slit lamp findings, lens opacification, intraocular pressure, fundus findings, and laboratory findings.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Stabilization of visual acuity (prevention of loss of three or more lines on the ETDRS chart), stabilization of lesion size, lack of leakage of lesion, or decrease in subretinal fluid

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with subfoveal predominantly classic, minimally classic and purely occult lesions, secondary to age related macular degeneration, with a total lesion size (including blood, atrophy/scar and neovascularization) of < 12 total disc areas, of which at least 50% are active CNV.
