OBJECTIVE To estimate the number of non-Hispanic white individuals in the United States avoiding legal blindness and visual impairment from neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD) with ranibizumab availability. METHODS Modeling of visual acuity outcomes from phase 3 ranibizumab trials to incidence rates of neovascular AMD from population-based studies. RESULTS If no treatment were given, of the 103 582 individuals developing neovascular AMD for which ranibizumab would be… CONTINUE READING
