Our consultants can facilitate genetic testing for a range of eye diseases

The consultant will discuss with you which genetic tests are of value, arrange the blood collection and the dispatch to the laboratory

On receipt of the results, the consultant will inform you of the significance of the result for yourself and your family

There are a number of diseases which can be tested including

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa
  • Macular Dystrophies such as Stargardt’s and Best Disease
  • Usher syndrome
  • Ocular Cutaneous Albinism

Please note that there is no Medicare funding for these tests and that they are expensive.
