Brief Summary:
This study will compare the safety and efficacy of Medidur FA treatment in one eye to the sham-treated fellow eye of subjects with geographic atrophy secondary to AMD.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Age-Related Macular Degeneration Drug: Fluocinolone Acetonide Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Each patient received a sham injection in one eye and active treatment in the other eye. The eye receiving active treatment was selected based on a randomization schedule.
