Brief Summary:
The objectives of this study are to investigate the safety and effectiveness of EYLEA.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Choroidal Neovascularization Drug: Aflibercept (Eylea, VEGF Trap-Eye, BAY86-5321)

Detailed Description:

This is a prospective, non-interventional, multi center post-authorization safety study that includes patients with a diagnosis of myopic choroidal neovascularization. The investigator will have made the choice of treatment (EYLEA) as well as the decision to use EYLEA according the Japanese Package Insert prior to enrolling the patient in this study.

The observation period for each patient starts when therapy with EYLEA is initiated. The enrollment period is 2 years. Patients will be followed for a time period of 1 years or until it is no longer possible (e.g. lost to follow-up within the 1 year ). In total, 300 patients will be recruited.

For each patient, data are collected as defined in the electronic case report form (eCRF) at the initial visit, follow-up visits and final visit, either by routine clinical visits (as per investigators routine practice) .
