Dr. Michael Repka Part of Team Researching Telemedicine and ROP


Dr. Michael Repka, chief of pediatric ophtalmology and adult strabismus at the Wilmer Eye Institute, and Dr. Pamela Donohue of the Johns Hopkins Children's Center were part of a team researching the effectiveness of telemedicine in diagnosing retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in infants. The study, funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI) and conducted by the e-ROP Cooperative Group, a collaboration of 12 hospitals in North America, including Johns Hopkins, indicated that telemedicine screening could be very effective in diagnosing ROP in its early stages. Results are reported in JAMA Ophthalmology and summarized on the NEI's website.
