Early stages of ROP do not require any treatment. If ROP advances, laser treatment is used to eliminate the abnormal blood vessels.
Treatment for vision problems may include one or more of the following:
- Temporarily patching one eye (to treat amblyopia)
- Eye surgery
All premature babies and babies with ROP need to be followed closely for vision problems.
Talk with your Eye M.D. if you have any questions about your eyes or your vision, at any age.
