What is ROP?
Retinopathy of prematurity is a disorder that primarily affects infants that are born prematurely — usually before 31 weeks of gestation with a birth weight of about 2.75 pounds. Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) affects blood vessel growth in the eyes, and may cause permanent blindness.
Legal help is available for parents who believe their infant’s Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) was caused by a medical mistake during the birthing process. We advocate for parents whose children suffer a birth injury and will fight to ensure the responsible person is held accountable.
