Medication Summary

If a patient has prethreshold retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), some centers try to maintain normal serum levels of vitamin E.

Vitamin E use was evaluated in a meta-analysis, and levels should be maintained within the reference range in patients at high risk for severe retinopathy of prematurity.
