Aim of the study: This study aims to correlate the relationship of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) with anemia in premature infants with regard to incidence and progression of ROP. Materials and Methods: All high-risk infants from our institution and neighboring districts as selected by neonatologist were screened at Special newborn care unit every Thursday on regular basis, and this study includes infants screened at ROP clinic during January 2017–March 2017. Conclusion: In our study at ROP clinic, high-risk premature infants who were screened showed a significant prevalence of ROP in babies weighing <2.000 kg and with female preponderance. The role of anemia and other neonatal risk factors needs to be evaluated further in our ongoing study.
