Abstract The Early Treatment for Retinopathy of Prematurity (ETROP) Study began enrollment in October 2000. It was designed to test the hypothesis that earlier treatment in selected high risk cases of acute ROP will result in better visual outcomes than conventionally timed treatment. No more than one eye of each infant could be treated early. The primary outcome was grating visual acuity at 9 months corrected age (approximately one year following birth). Enrollment was completed in 2002, and the results of the study were reported in 2004.
