Retinopathy of Prematurity

Retinopathy of Prematurity is a condition that can cause vision blindness in premature birth. This condition beginswithin a few weeks after birth and grows rapidly or resolves on its own over the next few weeks. The internationalclassification defines 5 stages, 3 regions and additional diseases (retinal vascular folds and dilatation). In 2010,  the annual incidence of blindness or visual impairment due to PR was estimated to affect 32,000 premature babies. All regions are now affected.
Risk factors for PR include increased rates of preterm birth, poor growth and various postpartum risks, including hyperopia and fluctuatinghypo/hyperopia, sepsis, weight loss, thrombocytopenia and anemia, and blood products.Exceptions are babies with emotional instability,  those who develop necrotizing enterocolitis, and those with  bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
