Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants of any age.

Inclusion Criteria: - Previous enrollment in 0910-extension study evaluating intravitreal aflibercept injection (NCT 00964795) without early study discontinuation prior to sponsor early termination. - Patients are enrolled within 90 days of site activation (all attempts will be made to ensure IAI is given once exited from the 0910-extension and prior to enrollment). - Willing and able to comply with clinical visits and study related procedures. - Provide signed informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Prior treatment with verteporfin, or external-beam radiation therapy, or transpupillary thermotherapy in the study eye - Previous subfoveal focal laser photocoagulation involving the foveal center in the study eye - History of vitrectomy, submacular surgery, or other surgical intervention for AMD in the study eye - Any concurrent intraocular condition in the study eye (e.g. diabetic retinopathy or glaucoma) that, in the opinion of the investigator, could either - require medical or surgical intervention during the study period to prevent or treat visual loss that might result from that condition, or - if allowed to progress untreated, could likely contribute to loss of at least 2 Snellen equivalent lines of best corrected visual acuity over the study period - Active intraocular inflammation (grade trace or above) in the study eye, or history of idiopathic or autoimmune-associated uveitis in either eye - Current vitreous hemorrhage in the study eye - History of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment or macular hole (Stage 3 or 4) in the study eye - Active infectious conjunctivitis, keratitis, scleritis, or endophthalmitis in either eye - Aphakia, ACIOL, or unstable PCIOL - Uncontrolled glaucoma in the study eye (defined as intraocular pressure ≥30 mmHg despite treatment with anti-glaucoma medication) - Pregnant or breast-feeding women - Sexually active men* or women of childbearing potential** who are unwilling to practice adequate contraception during the study (adequate contraceptive measures include stable use of oral contraceptives or other prescription pharmaceutical contraceptives for 2 or more menstrual cycles prior to screening; intrauterine device [IUD]; bilateral tubal ligation; vasectomy; condom plus contraceptive sponge, foam, or jelly, or diaphragm plus contraceptive sponge, foam, or jelly) - Contraception is not required for men with documented vasectomy. - Postmenopausal women must be amenorrheic for at least 12 months in order not to be considered of child bearing potential.
