Yes: Babies with retinopathy of prematurity (rop) have a good chance of seeing in societies where advanced medical care exists. About 500 children per year in the us are reported to develop blindness due to rop. Ongoing follow up for babies with rop is important because other vision issues can also occur in these children over time.
