Trial Information

Use of Eylea for the Treatment of an Optic Nerve Hemangioma

The treatment plan will be to administer aflibercept 2.0 mg intravitreally every two to four
weeks for at least six consecutive injections. Prior to initiation of therapy and at each
study visit, a full ophthalmic examination, best-corrected visual acuity, and a complete
review of systems to monitor for any toxicity will be performed. In addition, the
investigators will perform fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography at baseline and
obtain color fundus photographs as well as spectral domain OCT images to properly document
the extent and degree of activity of the vascular tumor at baseline and at all study visits.

Inclusion Criteria:

- retinal hemangioma

- previously treated with conventional therapies, including Avastin, Lucentis, steroid,

pressure, or any suspected toxicity from aflibercept
