Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the superiority regarding vitreomacular adhesion (VMA) resolution of a single intravitreal injection of A01016 (Ocriplasmin) compared to sham-injection in subjects with symptomatic VMA.

Drug Information available for: Ocriplasmin

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ocriplasmin
Ocriplasmin administered as a single intravitreal injection to the study eye at baseline
Drug: Ocriplasmin
Other Name: A01016

Sham Comparator: Sham injection
Single sham injection to the study eye at baseline

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Subjects With Non-Surgical Resolution of Vitreomacular Adhesion (VMA) [ Time Frame: Day 28 ]
    VMA (adhesion of the vitreous gel to the retina in an abnormally strong manner) was determined by masked Central Reading Center (CRC) Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) evaluation. Only one eye (study eye) was analyzed. Proportion of subjects is reported as a percentage.
