      Trial Summary

      This is a multicenter prospective study in participants with intermediate age-related macular degeneration (iAMD). One primary objective of this study is to assess iAMD disease progression, by the timeline and rates of conversion for high-risk iAMD at baseline to more advanced atrophic AMD stages. The other primary objective of this observational study is to assess the feasibility of measuring the rate of photoreceptor loss as a potential clinical endpoint. The study will consist of an observation period of approximately 3 years (~144 weeks) for participants.
