THIS ISSUE OF THE ARCHIVES includes a trilogy of articles from the Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) Study Group that reports 10-year follow-up findings.1- 3 An avalanche of data is presented on ophthalmological outcomes, the effect of ablative therapy for threshold ROP on visual fields, and contrast sensitivity at age 10 years in children who had ROP. While all of these reports contain useful and important information, the topic that most ophthalmologists will focus on is visual outcomes.
