  • Subfoveal fibrosis or subfoveal atrophy

Either Eye

  • Aphakia or absence of the posterior capsule
  • Any concurrent intraocular condition that would either require surgical intervention during the study to prevent or treat visual loss that might result from that condition or affect interpretation of study results
  • Corneal ECD ≤1500 cells/mm2 in either eye at screening as determined by the independent reading center
  • Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy Grade ≥ 2

  • Active thyroid eye disease

Concurrent Ocular Conditions Study Eye

  • Retinal pigment epithelial tear

  • Retinal tears or peripheral retinal breaks on depressed fundus exam that are untreated, or treated within the 3 months prior to study enrollment
  • Aphakia or absence of the posterior capsule
  • Previous violation of the posterior capsule is also an exclusion criterion unless it occurred as a result of yttrium-aluminum garnet (YAG) laser posterior capsulotomy in association with prior, posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation

Description:
Participants will have the implant (filled prior to implantation with approximately 20 uL of the 100-mg/mL formulation of ranibizumab [approximately 2-mg dose of ranibizumab]) surgically inserted in the study eye at the Day 1 visit following their enrollment visit. After the initial fill of the implant with ranibizumab, patients will receive implant refill-exchanges at fixed 24-week intervals.
Treatment:
Device: SUSVIMO Port Delivery System with ranibizumab (PDS)
