Measure Description: BCVA was measured using eye chart and reported as number of letters read correctly using the ETDRS Scale (ranging from 0 to 100 letters) in study eye. Lower number of letters read correctly on eye chart, worse the vision (or visual acuity). Study eye is defined as eye that meets entry criteria. If both eyes met entry criteria, eye with worse BCVA at baseline (Day 1) was selected as study eye. If both eyes had same BCVA values at baseline (Day 1), then participant had to select their non-dominant eye for treatment, or else right eye was selected as study eye.
[2]
Measure Analysis Population Description: The per-protocol (PP) population included all randomized and treated participants without any protocol deviations that impacted the primary efficacy variable and with treatment compliance to represent the intended regimen adequately.

Measure Description: CRT 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. The study eye is defined as the eye that meets the entry criteria. If both eyes met the entry criteria, the eye with the worse BCVA at baseline (Day 1) was selected as the study eye. If both eyes had same BCVA values at baseline (Day 1), then the participant had to select their non-dominant eye for treatment, or else the right eye was selected as the study eye.

Measure Description: NEI-VFQ-25 consists of 25 vision-targeted questions that represent 11 vision-related quality of life subscales and one general health item. Responses of individual participants were recorded as scores that ranged between 0 (worst) to 100 (best vision related function) with higher scale indicating better vision related function. The overall composite score is then calculated by averaging over all 11 vision-targeted subscale scores, excluding the general health score. Overall composite score was calculated based on mean of non-missing subscales.

Measure Analysis Population Description: Number analyzed is the number of participants with data available at Baseline.
1.Primary Outcome
Title Percentage of Participants With Stable Vision at Week 52
Hide Description Stable vision was defined as a loss of fewer than 15 letters in BCVA compared to baseline. BCVA was measured using an eye chart and reported as the number of letters read correctly using the Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study (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. The percentage of participants with a BCVA loss of fewer than 15 letters are reported. The study eye is defined as the eye that meets the entry criteria. If both eyes met the entry criteria, the eye with the worse BCVA at baseline (Day 1) was selected as the study eye. If both eyes had same BCVA values at baseline (Day 1), then the participant had to select their non-dominant eye for treatment, or else the right eye was selected as the study eye.
