Is it necessary to hold the depressor with the left hand? Can this examination be done by holding the depressor in the right hand and the lens in the left hand?

This laser settings are definitly too much. Start with less energy and 150 ms. Encrease energy if needed. Unless you have broken optical fibre.. in that case you need more power.

I had this when I was a baby but got laser treatment, now I'm 17 just fine just need to wear glasses I'm wondering if ROP will cause eye problems later in life? Or if it will come back?
