Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects with nonsurgical resolution of focal vitreomacular traction (VMT/VMA) at Day 28, as determined by Central Reading Center (CRC) Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD‐OCT) evaluation [ Time Frame: Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) at distance [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 0), up to Day 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects with closure of macular hole (MH), if present at baseline [ Time Frame: Up to Day 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects with nonsurgical resolution of VMT/sVMA [ Time Frame: Up to Day 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Proportion of subjects experiencing pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) at Day 180 [ Time Frame: Day 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in central foveal thickness [ Time Frame: Up to Day 180 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 628
Study Start Date: April 2014
Study Completion Date: September 2015
Primary Completion Date: September 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Ocriplasmin
Ocriplasmin 0.125 mg in a 0.1 mL volume administered as a single dose by intravitreal injection
Drug: Ocriplasmin 0.125 mg in a 0.1 mL volume
Other Name: JETREA®

Detailed Description:
Subjects will be recruited from approximately 90 centers in approximately 11 countries across Europe and Canada. After receiving a single intravitreal injection as per country's product label (Day 0), subjects will be followed for a 6-month period (Day 180).

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of vitreomacular traction/symptomatic vitreomacular adhesion (VMT/sVMA), with evidence of focal VMT visible on Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT).
  • Read, sign, and date an Institutional Review Board/Ethics Committee-approved informed consent form.
  • Other protocol-defined inclusion criteria may apply.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women of childbearing potential if pregnant, breastfeeding, or not in agreement to use adequate birth control methods to prevent pregnancy throughout the study.
  • Hypersensitivity to ocriplasmin or any of the JETREA excipients.
  • Active or suspected intraocular or periocular infection.
  • Presence of Epiretinal Membrane (ERM) over the macula at baseline.
  • Broad VMT/VMA >1500 microns at baseline.
  • History of vitrectomy in the study eye.
  • History of laser photocoagulation to the macula in the study eye.
  • Any relevant concomitant ocular condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, could be expected to worsen or require surgical intervention during the study period.
  • Macular hole of >400µm diameter in the study eye.
  • High myopia in the study eye.
  • Pseudo-exfoliation, Marfan's syndrome, phacodonesis or any other finding in the Investigator's opinion suggesting lens/zonular instability.
  • Aphakia.
  • History of retinal detachment.
  • Diabetic retinopathy, ischaemic retinopathies, retinal vein occlusions.
  • Recent ocular surgery or ocular injection.
  • Vitreous hemorrhage.
  • Exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
  • Therapy with another investigational agent within 30 days prior to Visit 1.
  • Active, simultaneous enrollment in another ophthalmology clinical study.
  • Other protocol-defined exclusion criteria may apply.
