Visual Acuity, Optical Components, and Macular Abnormalities in Patients with a History of Retinopathy of Prematurity

Ophthalmology, 05/25/2012

Patients with a history of threshold retinopathy of prematurity are more likely to show abnormal foveal development and have a poorer visual prognosis than other patient groups despite a fundus with no macular dragging, disc dragging, or retinal detachment. A steeper corneal curvature, shallower anterior chamber, and greater lens thickness are the main changes in the optical components in these patients.
