Primary Outcome Measures:
- Number of Participants Who Develop Vacuolization in the Inner Nuclear Layer (INL) of the Retina as Measured by Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]Vacuolization is defined as the presence of more than one vacuole (defined as a clear, round structure in the INL of the retina of at least 30 microns in diameter) compared to baseline in either the left or right eye as evaluated by ocular coherence tomography (OCT).
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Number of Participants Who Have a Decrease in Visual Acuity Score of at Least Seven Letters From Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4, 8 and 12 months ]Visual acuity was assessed in both eyes by best corrected visual acuity following standardized refraction. The best corrected visual acuity score is the number of letters on a standard visual acuity testing chart read correctly by a participant. A decrease in best corrected visual acuity score in the left and/or right eye indicates a worsening of vision.
- Number of Participants With Change From Baseline of Center Foveal Thickness of Greater Than 15 Microns as Measured by OCT [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4, 8 and 12 months ]Center foveal thickness measured by OCT was evaluated for a change from baseline in greater than 15 microns in either the left or right eye.
- Change From Baseline in the Numerical Score of Graded Abnormalities as Measured by OCT [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4, 8 and 12 months ]Individual OCT abnormalities were scored as 0=not present or 1=present. The total number of possible abnormalities present was 84 (42 possible abnormalities per eye). Data are for the left and right eyes combined (score range: 0 to 84). Change from Baseline at a given timepoint was calculated as Timepoint Score minus Baseline Score. A smaller score indicates fewer graded abnormalities.
- Change From Baseline in the Numerical Score of Graded Abnormalities as Measured by Fundus Photography [ Time Frame: Baseline and 4, 8 and 12 months ]Individual fundus photography abnormalities were scored as 0=not present or 1=present. The total number of possible abnormalities present was 48 (24 possible abnomalities per eye). Data are for the left and right eyes combined (score range: 0 to 48). Change from Baseline at a given timepoint was calculated as Timepoint Score minus Baseline Score. A smaller score indicates fewer graded abnormalities.
