Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) Measured by Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) Letter Score at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ]
    Visual function of the study eye was assessed using the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) protocol at 4 meters. Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) score was measured using an eye chart and was reported as the number of letters read correctly at a testing distance of 4 meters 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. Change from baseline calculated by subtracting baseline value from observed post-baseline value at Week 12.

  2. Change From Baseline in Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) Measured by Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) Letter Score at Week 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 36 ]
    Visual function of the study eye was assessed using the Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) protocol at 4 meters. BCVA score was measured using an eye chart and was reported as the number of letters read correctly at a testing distance of 4 meters 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. Change from baseline calculated by subtracting baseline value from observed post-baseline value at Week 36.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Central Sub-field Retinal Thickness (CST) Measured by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) at Week 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ]
    Central Sub-field Retinal Thickness (CST) 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. Change from baseline calculated by subtracting baseline value from LOCF post-baseline value at Week 12.

  2. Change From Baseline in Central Sub-field Retinal Thickness (CST) Measured by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) at Week 36 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 36 ]
    CST 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. Change from baseline calculated by subtracting baseline value from LOCF post-baseline value at Week 36.

  3. Percentage of Participants With a ≥ 2-step Improvement at Week 12 in Diabetic Retinopathy Severity Scale (DRSS) From Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 12 ]
    The Diabetic Retinopathy Disease Severity Scale (DRSS) was used to describe overall retinopathy severity. It measured the 5 levels of diabetic retinopathy ranging from absence of retinopathy to severe retinopathy (none, mild, moderate, severe, and proliferative).

  4. Percentage of Participants With a ≥ 2-step Improvement at Week 36 in Diabetic Retinopathy Severity Scale (DRSS) From Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 36 ]
    The Diabetic Retinopathy Disease Severity Scale (DRSS) was used to describe overall retinopathy severity. It measured the 5 levels of diabetic retinopathy ranging from absence of retinopathy to severe retinopathy (none, mild, moderate, severe, and proliferative).
