Learn how the screening of ROP can help manage and prevent vision loss in babies

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) affects babies born preterm, before 37 weeks of gestation. Over 15 million babies worldwide are born prematurely each year, and it’s estimated over 20,000 of them will become blind from ROP.

On this course, you will learn how a practical team approach towards neonatal care and ROP screening, treatment and follow-up can help prevent blindness in preterm babies. You will also look at how the risk of ROP and the level of neonatal care can differ between higher and lower income regions of the world.
