What is retinopathy of prematurity?

A. Retinopathy of prematurity (R.O.P.) occurs in premature babies when scar tissue and abnormal blood vessels grow over the baby’s retina. It’s difficult to determine if R.O.P. will permanently affect vision. For many, R.O.P. goes away in time leaving vision unimpaired.
