Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a developmental disorder of the retinal vessels of a premature infant. ROP occurs only in immature retinal tissue which can cause a tractional (forced) retinal detachment. This forced retinal detachment often results in partial or complete blindness. At Ankura Hospital for Women and Children, our experts are skilled in performing ROP screenings regularly. The specialist diagnose the extent of the immaturity of the retinal tissue.
Benefits of timely treatment would help in reducing the risk of vision loss, and provide the adequate care needed for preterm infants to receive timed eye examinations.
