Abstract

Laser photocoagulation is the preferred method for treating retinopathy of prematurity. However, common sequelae after regression of retinopathy of prematurity include pigmentary changes, distortion and ectopia of the macula, stretching and folding of the retina involving the macula, vitreoretinal interface changes, vitreous membranes, and dragging of the retina over the disc. This report is of a boy born prematurely who underwent laser treatment for retinopathy of prematu- rity and developed lamellar macular hole.
