      All Gender
      ≥ 18 Years Age
      No Healthy Volunteers
      Inclusion Criteria


      • Study eye deemed to be indicated for ranibizumab ITV therapy at the discretion of the retina specialist
      Exclusion Criteria

      Concurrent Ocular Conditions

      • Patients legally blind in one or both eyes
      • History of or any current clinically relevant intraocular inflammation or ocular inflammatory reaction (any grading from trace and greater is excluded), including non-infectious uveitis or uveitis, or sterile inflammatory reaction after the past ITV injections with any agent
      • Active disorder of ocular adnexa and skin in the study eye, including ocular surface infections
      • History of or any current indication of excessive bleeding and recurrent hemorrhages, including any prior excessive intraocular (including subconjunctival) bleeding or hemorrhages after ITV injection or intraocular procedures
      • Uncontrolled intraocular pressure greater than (>) 25 millimeters of mercury (mmHg) in the study eye (uncontrolled means that it occurs even with intraocular pressure-lowering therapy)
      • Use of therapies that are known to be toxic to any ocular tissues within the 6 months prior to enrollment

      Prior Ocular Therapies

      • Treatment with any ITV injection within the 27 days prior to Day 1
      • Any invasive intraocular surgery, prior long-acting therapeutic agent, or ocular drug release device implantation (approved or investigational) in the study eye at any time during the past 3 months


      • Receipt of any systemic (non-ocular) investigational drug within 3 months prior to Day 1
      • Current systemic coagulation or bleeding disorders and history of recurrent hemorrhages
      • Intolerance or known reaction to prior biological therapies
      • History of other diseases or physical or laboratory examination findings that per the retina specialist represent a contraindication to ranibizumab use in the patient or may represent an unwarranted patient risk.
      • Uncontrolled hypertension (systolic >160 mmHg and/or diastolic >100 mmHg while sitting)
      • Current systemic infectious disease or a therapy for active infectious disease
      • Pregnant or lactating
