Key PointsQuestionDoes a treat-and-extend regimen of aflibercept or bevacizumab injections have outcomes similar to monthly injections in participants with macular edema associated with central retinal vein occlusion or hemiretinal vein occlusion who have exhibited a good response to 6 months of monthly injections? FindingsIn this secondary analysis of a randomized clinical trial, meaningful visual acuity differences at 12 months were not present in comparisons of participants who had received a treat-and-extend regimen vs patients who received monthly injections between months 6 and 12. MeaningBecause of the wide confidence intervals on visual acuity differences between the monthly and the treat-and-extend groups, caution is warranted before concluding that the 2 regimens are associated with similar vision outcomes.
