Abstract

The reasons for completing the classification of the end stages of ROP at this time are compelling. First, there has been an increase in the survival rate of infants of low birth weight who are most likely to develop the severe forms of the disease. Second, surgical treatment of these blind or nearblind infants is being undertaken without knowing which stage is being treated and what the implications of the results of such treatment are. Finally, as a result of further sugical observation and study of pathologic specimens, we now have an increased understanding of the development of the severe end stages of ROP.
