In brief: Retina specialist
Retinopathy of prematurity needs to be followed and treated by a retinal specialist.
Most cases can be observed and resolve but more severe cases may need retinal laser, intraocular injections, or even eye surgery.

In brief: Depends
If it's mild, observation.
If it's more severe, then laser of the retina. In the most severe cases, then retinal surgery like vitrectomy. Newer treatment are including eye injections of anti-vegf agents.
