DRCR protocol V: a 24-month analysis of loss of Visual Acuity for diabetic patients with good VA (20/25 or better) treated with focal laser, versus Aflibercept versus observation.
CANTREAT TRIAL: a comparison of Visual Acuity gain of 15 letters or more in patients with neovascular ARMD treated with monthly Ranibizumab injections versus Treat and Extend Ranibizumab injections over a 24-month period.
