The Armenian EyeCare Project (AECP) has launched a screening, diagnostics, and treatment program to combat neo-natal retinopathy, an ailment on the rise in Armenia. Led by AECP international associates, treatment for Retinopathy of Prematurity will be implemented in several Neonatal Intensive Care Units in Yerevan.
Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is a condition in which abnormal changes occur in the retina that can result in childhood blindness. The risk group for ROP is defined as infants born with a birth weight of less than 1500 g or with a gestational age of 30 weeks or less.
