In brief: Eye exam

Retinopathy of prematurity is not to be neglected.
An infants retinal blood vessels may take time to mature. As they mature, a retinal specialist must follow the maturation to ensure normal progression. Abnormal blood vessel growth can threaten vision. Fortunately, treatment is available via laser, surgery and injectable medications.
