Abstract

Introduction: Retinopathy of prematurity is a leading cause of childhood blindness around the world. Aim: The Department of Ophthalmology in Semmelweis University and the Neonatal Emergency and Ambulance Service called Peter Cerny started an innovation called Premature Eye Rescue Program to reduce the non-essential transport of premature babies suffering from retinopathy of prematurity. Method: During the first 5 years 186 eyes of 93 premature babies were treated bedside with stage 3 retinopathy of prematurity in the primary hospitals. Results: In this first 5-years period the authors reduced the event of transports of premature babies for laser treatment; 93 children avoided the unnecessary transport, saving altogether 21,930 kilometres distance for children as well as the ambulance service. Conclusions: The Premature Eye Rescue Program offers an effective and good alternative method for treatment of retinopathy in the primary hospitals. The authors propose the national extension of this program.
