In brief: Retinal oxygen baby

Retinopathy in the premie baby has been studied extensively over the past two decades and great strides have been made in prevention and/or treatment.
Most neonatal care centers have the knowledge, proper monitoring equipment and dedicated trained professionls to help. Carefully following these children after discharge is still a very big challenge as the risk to their vision is not short term.
