    Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) Premature infants with low birth weights are at higher risk for developing retinopathy of prematurity (ROP).

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a potentially avoidable cause of irreversible, and usually total blindness in infants who are born premature. It is a major cause of blindness in children in middle-income countries and south-east Asia and has lifelong implications for the child and their family.

    General Discussion. Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a potentially blinding disease affecting the retinas in premature infants. The retinas are the light-sensitive linings of the insides of the eyes. retinopathy of prematurity a disease of the developing retinal vasculature of the premature newborn. The incidence correlates with degree of prematurity; that is, the more premature the infant is, the greater the possibility of this condition occurring.
