A series of 38 patients with regressed retinopathy of prematurity were compared with control groups of babies having similar gestational age who did not have retinopathy of prematurity, and to a control group of full-term babies. A substantially higher incidence of strabismus, amblyopia, and high refractive errors was found in the group with retinopathy of prematurity as compared with both other groups. In general, these patients had a successful response to standard amblyopia and strabismus management. No substantial difference was found between the refractive errors of the babies in the premature control group and the term control group.
