World Prematuirity Day

Retinopathy of Prematurity is a potentially blinding eye disease that affects premature infants and is the leading cause of blindness among children worldwide. It’s particularly prevalent in South East Asia where more premature babies are being saved, but few hospitals have the skills & resources to deliver the care needed.

According to the World Health Organization 15 million babies are estimated to be born early each year and with pre-term birth comes the risk of blindness. The International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness tell us that 32,300 pre-term babies become permanently blind or visually impaired from Retinopathy of Prematurity every year.

Babies born at a very early gestation can develop Retinopathy of Prematurity where blood vessels grow abnormally and uncontrollably causing damage to the light sensitive layer of the retina.
