Avellino corneal dystrophy is an inherited eye condition that may go undetected.
Tiny white dots begin to appear in the anterior stroma.
Overtime, these lesions progress into snowflake-like opacities, deteriorating visual acuity.
As the Avellino corneal dystrophy was first discovered about 20 years ago, there isn’t an actual cure.
However, together with your specialist, it is possible to develop a plan to protect your eyes and delay or avoid corneal dystrophy symptoms. This DNA test enables your specialist to definitely screen you for the most common forms of corneal dystrophy, improving the predicability of elective surgery.
