Brief Answer:
An ophthalmologist examining retina is needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service. I read your query and here is my advice.

It is important to know the stage of rop you were having.
Normally these baby's are treated with laser or cryotherapy soon after being diagnosed and their progression during life is tracked.
You may try laser therapy but you should consult an ophthalmologist to examine your retina in details and see if you can still do a laser therapy.

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
An ophthalmologist examination is necessary.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again dear and thank you for asking again.
I think the laser or cryotherapy should have been used early age when you were a kid and yes laser was invented in 80.

I think you should visit an ophthalmologist to see the conditions of retina the treatment options and if you can benefit from laser.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
Surgery is also advisable.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again. I don't know if it was applied in your country laser surgery at that time or if you did it and was unsuccessful.

You should discuss the treatment options with an ophthalmologist because you may also consider surgery.

Brief Answer:
Cryotherapy uses low temperature to freeze tissues.

Detailed Answer:
Hello I believe laser was used in XXXXXXX in 80. Cryotherapy is a therapy which uses low temperature to freeze living tissues; used to treat Rop.
I think you can try microsurgery and laser therapy and can even have benefits today that you are adult.
Best regards
