Florida Birth Injury Lawyers on Retinopathy of Prematurity Risks

Not all premature babies will develop retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Some babies born prematurely may have additional risk factors and be more vulnerable to developing ROP than others. Additional risk factors for ROP in premature infants include gestational age, low birth weights, the amount of oxygen exposure babies receive among other potential ROP blindness risk factors. However, our Florida birth injury lawyers caution that all premature newborns should be screened and properly monitored for retinopathy of prematurity, as ROP blindness, when properly treated, is almost always preventable.

Watch these videos what additional ROP risk factors doctors must consider after premature labor to prevent baby blindness caused by ROP in premature infants.
