    My premature baby now 3 months, has ROP 5th stage, taken 20 days on oxygen due to complications at the time of birth. I have taken checkup of baby from – Arvindo Hospital-Indore, Rajas eye care-Indore, Raghudeep eye hospital- Ahmedabad, Sankar Nethralay – Chennai, Shroff Eye hospital – Delhi, AIIMS – Delhi. Doctors examined baby & told baby’s both eye retina has problem, eye membrane totally detached.

    I am waiting for any positive hope from anywhere, kindly suggest if any possibility of cure / transplant. I believe God will give me right direction, kindly help.
