There is a Significant Need for More Durable Therapies in Wet AMD Many patients with wet AMD are chronically undertreated >80% of Retina Specialists say undertreatment is due to patient noncompliance, scheduling limitations or provider preference for less frequent dosing1 2 Current “treat and extend” protocol still places significant burden on physicians and patients Chronic disease treated with short acting anti-VEGF biologics A delay in care/missed visit can result in vision loss A delay in treatment of only 5.34 weeks resulted in vision loss2 3 1 4 An aging population means significantly more injections in a patient’s lifetime Current anti-VEGF treatments are dosed on average every two months in the United States3 1. 2022 PAT Survey; 2.

EYP-1901 Is Positioned As A Potential Maintenance Therapy In Wet AMD ©2023 EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Treat wet AMD patients with anti-VEGF of choice to reach desired “dry” outcome and maximize visual improvement Maintain with EYP-1901, a new MOA with sustained delivery and zero order kinetics for six-months or longer providing physicians and patients the potential flexibility to reduce the number of visits without sacrificing visual outcomes Supplement with current anti-VEGF biologic, if needed Based on DAVIO Phase 1 outcomes, we believe the majority of patients may be maintained visually and anatomically with EYP-1901 alone

Reduction in Treatment Burden is an Important Secondary Outcome Given the Unmet Need in wet AMD for More Durable Therapies ©2023 EyePoint Pharmaceuticals, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Treatment burden = Number of injections an eye receives for the 24-week period following EYP-1901 dosing or sham injection in control arm Treatment burden will be assessed and reported in two ways: Prospectively against the aflibercept control Retrospectively against the mean number of treatments prior to enrollment Market research suggests a reduction in treatment burden of 50% or greater in one or both arms of EYP-1901 could provide physicians the flexibility to reduce the number of visits without sacrificing visual outcomes
