Twice Blessed Daddy Thinks We Should Play the Lottery!

Some interesting ROP facts ~ Each year…

3,900,000 infants are born
28,000 are born under 2 ¾ pounds
15,000 get ROP
1,300 develop ROP requiring medical treatment
500 develop blindness

So, that’s 1 in 78,000 babies, or 1 in 56 preemies (under 3 pounds ) who develop blindness due to ROP.

Our odds are pretty good that we should buy a lottery ticket!!
