With improvements in pediatric care, more premature babies are surviving than ever before. But that also means a significant increase in retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), which can affect as many as 1-4 out of 10 children born in the near future. In places like Latin America, retinal specialists and pediatricians both can be overwhelmed by demand for pediatric retinal care.
So, at PAAO, we turned to Dr. Viviane Lanzelotte Lopes from Brazil and Dr. Sofia Vidal from Argentina to demonstrate how the LKC RETeval™ can help doctors perform retinal health scans on all patients, including infants. The handheld device can even be used on infants with their eyes closed. Be sure to check out LKC’s website to learn more: lkc.com/products/reteval/reteval-in-pediatrics/
