  9. Percentage of participants who lose <10, <5, or gain >= 0 letters in BCVA score from baseline averaged over Weeks 68 and 72 [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 72 ]
  10. Percentage of participants who lose <10, <5, or gain >= 0 letters in BCVA score from baseline over time [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Week 72 ]
