Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) in the Study Eye at Week 16 Using the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 16 ]
    BCVA is measured using an eye chart and is reported as the number of letters read correctly using the ETDRS Scale (ranging from 0 to 100 letters) in the study eye. The lower the number of letters read correctly on the eye chart, the worse the vision (or visual acuity). An increase in the number of letters read correctly means that vision has improved.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in BCVA in the Study Eye at Week 20 Using the ETDRS Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 20 ]
    BCVA is measured using an eye chart and is reported as the number of letters read correctly using the ETDRS Scale (ranging from 0 to 100 letters) in the study eye. The lower the number of letters read correctly on the eye chart, the worse the vision (or visual acuity). An increase in the number of letters read correctly means that vision has improved.

  2. Percentage of Patients With a BCVA Gain of 15 or More Letters in the Study Eye Using the ETDRS Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 20 ]
    BCVA is measured using an eye chart and is reported as the number of letters read correctly using the ETDRS Scale (ranging from 0 to 100 letters) in the study eye. The lower the number of letters read correctly on the eye chart, the worse the vision (or visual acuity). An increase in the number of letters read correctly means that vision has improved.

  3. Percentage of Patients With a BCVA Gain of 10 or More Letters in the Study Eye Using the ETDRS Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 20 ]
    BCVA is measured using an eye chart and is reported as the number of letters read correctly using the ETDRS Scale (ranging from 0 to 100 letters) in the study eye. The lower the number of letters read correctly on the eye chart, the worse the vision (or visual acuity). An increase in the number of letters read correctly means that vision has improved.

  4. Change From Baseline in Central Retinal Thickness (CRT) in the Study Eye [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 16, Week 20 ]
    CRT was assessed using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), a non-invasive diagnostic system providing high-resolution imaging sections of the retina. SD-OCT was performed in the study eye after pupil dilation. A negative change from Baseline indicated improvement.
