Retinopathy of Prematurity Research

ROP Lawyers in Miami

Research on Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is active and ongoing. One important conclusion seems no longer to be a subject of debate: The key to saving the sight of many premature babies is timely diagnosis of ROP in its early stages, accompanied by proper treatment once the disease is identified.

Ongoing Efforts Address Retinopathy of Prematurity

Ophthalmologists and referring physicians continue to be challenged by factors such as the unpredictability of when the disease develops and the ideal examination regimen for infants who show mild symptoms. Emerging diagnostic tools and newer treatments must be studied for their effectiveness, side effects and complications.

ROP-related research in recent years has focused on subjects including:

  • The effectiveness of new screening and examination techniques, such as wide-angle retinal imaging and telemedicine
  • ROP risk factors for different ethnic and national groups
  • Efforts to further define and understand the progression of ROP through its five known stages
  • Continued investigation into the effectiveness and long-term effects of treatments such as cryotherapy and laser therapy
  • Risk factors for different ethnic and national groups
  • Attempts to lower costs and make diagnosis and treatment more available
  • Overall studies of quality of life for low-birth-weight babies as they advance through childhood and into adulthood
