3815 individual babies in ROP screening net.


Sight saving effort


Baby of Rekha, 8 weeks female baby

The baby was screened at Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences for ROP screening. The baby was born with birth weight of 900 gms. The fundus pictures of the baby were uploaded on to our inbuilt software. The screened pictures showed Retinopathy of Prematurity in stage 3 with disease. The baby was advised for ROP management at the earliest to stop the progression of disease & to save the sight.

 Plan of treatment

With a travel distance of 103 kms, our Medical Director planned the visit to MIMS for management of the baby. Timely screening & intervention helped to save sight. In the follow-up the baby is doing well, ROP has regressed. The determined effort has ended in good result.
