  • Threshold value of handheld Health Management Tool (HMT) for choroidal neovascular AMD diagnosis at baseline [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • Identification of clinically relevant worsening of visual function in the home self testing mVT scores [ Time Frame: baseline to 16 weeks ]
Same as current

  • Correlation of the handheld Health Management Tool (HMT) home self testing on the days of site visits and the mVT assessments performed during the site visits for absolute values [ Time Frame: after 16 weeks ]
  • Correlation between the home deterioration signal and the monthly change in the handheld Health Management Tool (HMT) assessments performed during the site visits [ Time Frame: after 16 weeks ]
  • Patient compliance and reliability of performing the home self testing using the handheld Health Management Tool (HMT) [ Time Frame: after 16 weeks ]
  • Correlation between absolute values of the handheld Health Management Tool (HMT) and BCVA/ central retinal subfield thickness (CRST) [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
  • Correlation of the monthly changes in handheld Health Management Tool(HMT)to those of BCVA / OCT / Clinical examination [ Time Frame: after 16 weeks ]
  • Correlation of diagnosis of choroidal neovascular AMD with BCVA/ central retinal subfield thickness [ Time Frame: baseline ]
    The disease diagnoses at baseline will be correlated to values of BCVA and CRST at baseline
  • Correlation of monthly changes observed within the investigator judgment (CJ-C) to BCVA / OCT / Clinical examination [ Time Frame: baseline to 16 weeks ]
    Monthly changes in BCVA /OCT and clinical examination will be compared to clinical relevant changes as judged by the investigator on the CJC.
  • Patient compliance with the signs and symptom questionnaire [ Time Frame: baseline to 16 weeks ]
    The percentage of completed assessments of the signs & symptoms questionnaire on the HMT will be provided
  • Patient satisfaction regarding the use of the HMT [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
