Retinopathy of Prematurity

Your child is being seen as part of the routine follow-up care for premature infants. We are specifically checking your child for retinopathy of prematurity.

As you may know, in the back of the eye there is a thin film called the retina. This actually functions like the film in a camera and is responsible for taking a"picture." In some premature infants, particularly in those children who had breathing problems during the newborn period, they can develop some"wrinkling" or scarring of the rtina. This is retinopathy of prematurity.

Our examination is being made to make certain that the retina is developing normally. If everything is coming along fine at this time, we usually do like to check the children again in six months. At that time, in addition to checking once again for retinopathy of prematurity, we are able to start to evaluate the development of the vision.
