Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Visual Acuity (VA) and mean change in VA [ Time Frame: 3,6, and 12 months from the baseline visit, and annually thereafter ]
  • Incidence rate, relationship and severity of treatment emergent ocular and non-ocular adverse events [ Time Frame: Defined time periods during study duration from FPFV until 30 days after LPLV ]
  • Mean visual acuity at quarterly intervals for the primary treated eye set [ Time Frame: Quarterly intervals from baseline visit during study duration (5 years) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence rate of Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From the time the patient signed the informed consent until 30 days after study discontinuation ]
  • Number of ranibizumab injections administered per patient, per eye, and per person-year [ Time Frame: annually ]
  • "National Eye Institute Visual Functioning Questionnaire-25" change from baseline [ Time Frame: annually ]
  • Overall number of ranibizumab injections, number of visits, time interval between injections, duration of treatment, number of re-treatment, and reasons for treatment termination [ Time Frame: Over time during study duration (5 years) ]
  • Change from baseline in National Eye Institute Visual Function Questionnaire 25 composite and sub-scale scores [ Time Frame: Over time during study duration (5 years) ]
