Zone III is the remaining crescent-shaped temporal retina the larger the avascular retinal area and the more problematic the potential course of the disease. For the purpose of using standardized descriptions or ROP, the retina is divided into different zones. Zone I is defined by a circle around the optic nerve head (ONH) with twice the diameter ONH—fovea. Central zone II (or posterior zone II) is defined by a circle around the ONH with three times the diameter ONH—fovea. Peripheral zone II (or anterior zone II) is a circle around the ONH reaching the ora serrata nasally.
The ROP zones are schematically depicted in Fig. 2. Stage 4 and 5 of ROP are characterized by partial or complete retinal detachment and can be avoided in most cases by timely treatment at earlier stages. Stage 4 and 5 of ROP are often associated with poor functional long-term outcomes. However, in some cases ROP can progress so aggressively that even with best-possible screening and treatment protocols in place stage 4 or 5 will develop. This is particularly the case in the Treatment of ROP Published in 1990, the CRYO-ROP study defined the underlying principle for ROP treatment for the next decades (Multicenter trial of cryotherapy for retinopathy of prematurity).
