This is a case report which highlights the challenges faced in treating Type 1 early treatment of retinopathy of prematurity (ETROP) with corneal haze. We report a case of a preterm boy born at 28 weeks with birth weight of 1000 g who presented with corneal haze along with Type 1 ETROP. Because of inability to complete LASER and increase in posterior plus disease , intravitreal ranibizumab was given as a rescue therapy to buy time. Finally, we could succeed in treating the disease with complete regression and clear cornea on the last follow-up.
