Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Patients Reporting Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Incidence of Patients Reporting Ophthalmic Adverse Events of Special Interest [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The ophthalmic adverse events of special interest include: increased intraocular pressure, glaucoma, ocular hypertension, cataract formation and progression, vitreous detachment, haemorrhage, endophthalmitis (infectious/ non-infectious), retinitis secondary to reactivation of latent viral or other ophthalmic infections, retinal tear/detachment, significant vitreous leak or hypotony, systemic corticosteroid effects, and mechanical failure of device and implant misplacement.
