About Wet Age-Related Macular Degeneration (wet AMD)Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of acquired blindness.  Macular degeneration is diagnosed as either dry (non-exudative) or wet (exudative).  In wet AMD, new blood vessels grow beneath the retina and leak blood and fluid.  This leakage causes disruption and dysfunction of the retina creating distortion and/or blind spots in central vision, and it can account for blindness in wet AMD patients.  Wet AMD is the leading cause of blindness for people over the age of 65 in the U.S. and Europe.  It is estimated that more than 210,000 Americans are newly diagnosed with and treated for wet AMD each year.

About Central Retinal Vein Occlusion (CRVO)Over 100,000 people in the United States and more than 66,000 people in key European countries are estimated to suffer from central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).  CRVO is caused by obstruction of the central retinal vein that leads to a back up of blood and fluid in the retina.  This causes retinal injury and loss of vision.  The retina can also become "ischemic" (starved for oxygen), resulting in the growth of new, inappropriate blood vessels that can cause further vision loss and more serious complications.  Release of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) contributes to increased vascular permeability in the eye and inappropriate new vessel growth.  It is believed that anti-VEGF treatment may help decrease vascular permeability and edema and prevent the inappropriate growth of new blood vessels in the retina in patients with CRVO.

About Diabetic Macular Edema (DME)Diabetic macular edema (DME) is the most prevalent cause of moderate vision loss in patients with diabetes.  DME is a common complica
