Trial Purpose

The main objectives of this observational cohort study are to describe the use of intravitreal aflibercept and to describe follow-up as well as treatment patterns in patients with wAMD or DME in routine clinical practice in Latin America for a study population of treatment naive patients and those who have received prior therapy (anti-VEGF injections, laser, steroids, etc.) and are being switched to intravitreal aflibercept injection.

Inclusion Criteria
- Age: ≥18 years of age for DME patients,
- Age: ≥55 for wAMD patients
- Decision to treat with intravitreal aflibercept in the study eye prior to patient enrolment as per the physician’s routine clinical practice and following the local Product monograph recommendations. Patients who are treatment naïve (no previous intravitreal treatment received, including, anti- VEGF agents, steroids, steroid implants and/or PDT) and patients that are switching from a different anti-VEGF therapy are both eligible to be included. DME patients that have received previous laser only will be classified as treatment naïve.
