Retinopathy of prematurity

At SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, we diagnose retinopathy in premature infants admitted to our hospital's Neonatal Unit and to other Catalan hospitals. 

We can follow up on patients throughout Catalonia thanks to telemedicine. We have a contact retinal camera (RetCam), the only one appropriate for examining the fundus of the eye of premature babies, which monitors the patient's clinical course from anywhere by sending images. 

We treat this disease with a specific laser diode, anti-angiogenic drug injections and vitreoretinal surgery. 

We follow up on ex-preterm infants at risk. We work closely with neonatologists, both from our hospital as well as from the other hospitals with which we collaborate.
