Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to collect real-life data on patients with wet age related macular degeneration (AMD) for whom treatment with Eylea was initiated

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Wet Macular Degeneration Drug: Aflibercept (Eylea, VEGF Trap-Eye, BAY86-5321)

Detailed Description:

The study is both retrospective and prospective to collect local real life data on patients under routine treatment. The observation period starts on January 2014. Patients who have received the 1st injection with Eylea from January 2014 will be enrolled.

Patients will be followed up for a period of 48 months or until it is no longer possible

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Cohort 1
According to the recommendations of the Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC)
Drug: Aflibercept (Eylea, VEGF Trap-Eye, BAY86-5321)
Administration by intravitreal injection

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in the measurement of best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) from baseline to 12 months. [ Time Frame: Baseline to 12 months ]
    As assessed by Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) method or any visual logarithmic scale

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) during the second year and until the fourth year of treatment versus the initial visit [ Time Frame: Baseline to 2 year, 3 year, 4 year ]
  2. Percentage of patients who experienced a gain in BCVA, from initial visit to each follow-up visit (letter score of ≥ 0 letters, ≥ 5 letters, ≥ 10 letters, ≥ 15 letters) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 1 year, 2 year, 3 year, 4 year ]
  3. Percentage of patients losing fewer than 15 letters from the initial visit visual acuity at each follow-up visit [ Time Frame: Baseline to 1 year, 2 year, 3 year, 4 year ]
