Abstract

Objective: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is one of the leading causes of childhood vision loss in both developed and developing countries. In this study, we aimed to assess the results of ROP screening and treatment, and to evaluate the risk factors in our newly established unit. We also compared our data with other studies reported in Turkey.
