  4. Be willing to discontinue contact lens wear for the duration of the study.
  5. Have a Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA) of 0.60 logarithm of the Minimum Angle of Resolution (logMAR) or better in each eye as measured using an Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS) chart.
  6. Other protocol defined inclusion criteria may apply
Exclusion Criteria:
