    Widefield optical coherence tomography of foveal dragging in retinopathy of prematurity

    Dear Editor, Despite substantial advances in neonatal medicine, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) continues to be a serious therapeutic challenge[1]. Visual acuity loss in patients with ROP has been associated with structural retinal abnormalities (including retinal detachment, retinal folds, and pigmentary retinopathy), cataract, glaucoma, and amblyopia due to refractive error or strabismus[2]. A subset of patients with ROP, either treated or untreated may develop temporal dragging of the fovea. The reported incidence of foveal dragging varies widely, but can be affected by retinal photocoagulation and the prematurity level of the infant. For example, a recent study reported an incidence ...
