Retinopathy of Prematurity is the largest source of preventable blindness today. Blindness is prevented by a series of eye exams during the first weeks of a premature baby's life to detect abnormal growth of blood vessels, which are treated using one of three proven techniques that stop the abnormal growth. The eye exams must be done on time every time.  The disease must be diagnosed as soon as it is diagnosable and treated as soon as it is treatable.  Insider Exclusive has featured the Girards Law Firm's case involving a little girl who went blind in El Paso, Texas, because the doctors did not do the eye exams on time every time.  And, when the problem was finally diagnosed, treatment was delayed because Pediatrix did not have the laser available to treat the eyes. The interview will be featured on our homepage for the next few weeks.
