One hundred and three eyes of 71 patients with mild retrolental fibroplasia in the cicatricial stage were examined. The characteristic changes were usually located in the temporal fundus periphery. The most frequently observed changes were proliferation of the retinal pigment epithelium, chorioretinal scarring, a translucent vitreous membrane overlying the temporal periphery of the retina, retinal folds, dragged disc, macular lesions, and white with or without pressure. The vitreous body contained dense organized bands and membranes in the vitreous base, especially on the temporal side. Vitreoretinal traction was considered a major etiological factor in the fundus changes.
