Genetic testing is becoming an increasingly important tool in determining the cause of hereditary ophthalmologic conditions. Currently, we know of more than 350 different genes associated with ophthalmologic diseases, including early-onset cataracts, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa, macular dystrophy, Stargardt disease, and Stickler syndrome among others. By providing a definitive diagnose through genetic testing, you can prevent or slow down the course of your patients’ eye diseases.
