Arsh ad M. Khanani, MD, and colleagues presented a retrospective evaluation of the 4-year results of the RENO study, which evaluated the real-world treatment outcomes of intravitreal Lucentis (ranibizumab, Genentech), Eylea (aflibercept, Regeneron) or Avastin (bevacizumab, Genentech) given as-needed for treating wet AMD.
