August 2020 · Vol. 51, No. 8 475 malities have been noted in both the eye and brain. Infants born prematurely, particularly those with CME, have been found to have delayed foveal pho- toreceptor development. 17 Two groups have report- ed lower visual acuity in infants and young chil- dren at 3 months, 9 to 14 months, and 4 to 5 years corrected age with a history of neonatal CME. 15,18 With the retina as an extension of the central ner- vous system, neonatal CME has further been corre- lated with anomalies on brain magnetic resonance imaging and poorer language and motor develop- ment Bayley Scale subscores at 18 to 24 months corrected age. 5,15 More severe CME, quantified by higher FP thickness ratios on OCT imaging, was linked to lower cognitive and motor subscores. 5 In conclusion, the expanded use of portable OCT imaging devices has made visualizing the pre- term macula and investigating CME mechanisms increasingly feasible. We demonstrate the utility of OCT imaging as an adjunct to standard clinical exam for monitoring the preterm retina, as well as consider the roles of VEGF and laser treatment in CME. Taken together with previous studies, this re- port highlights the multi-factorial etiology of mac- ular edema in infants with ROP and the possible role of anti-VEGF should be confirmed with more patients. Larger, more comprehensive, and longitu- dinal studies are needed to better understand the pathogenesis and significance of macular edema in the preterm retina, and how patterns can be used to predict later visual acuity and neurodevelopmental outcomes.
