An artist's conception of the interior of a normally developing premature infant eye. Description: Video illustration of retinopathy of prematurity ROP: ROP develops when normal blood vessel growth stops in the retina, nerve tissue that lines the back of the eye. In the worst situation, the normal blood vessels are replaced by abnormal vessels, which then may spread throughout the retina and into the center of the eye (vitreous). The scarring and bleeding may lead to retinal detachment, resulting in severe vision loss.

Video Caption: (Video only; no audio.) A close up of an infant's face. The camera begins to zoom in on the child's left eye. The zoom continues until the eye fills the screen at which point the image morphs into an animation of the child's eye. The animation then rotates to reveal a side cross-section of the child's eye. The animation continues illustrating abnormal blood vessel development leading to scarring, bleeding and possible retinal detachment.
