In another publication [6], an agenda for ROP was outlined for the future. High on that list was the completion of the task of classifying ROP. This has been accomplished, but it is obvious that no classification is any better than the use to which it is put. This is the case with this work. Its implementation in a prospective, controlled trial of surgical therapy of end-stage ROP will more than justify the labors of all who participated in its development.
