What are the Benefits of the Avellino DNA Test for LASIK Eye Surgery?
It is estimated that 1 in 870 people have Avellino Corneal Dystrophy (also known as Granular Corneal Dystrophy type 2), a condition that has a variety of symptoms, such as clouding of the cornea and/or lesions that look like cracked glass. However, not everyone with the condition experiences the same symptoms, and it can spell disaster if someone with ACD elects to receive LASIK eye surgery, which has been reported to exacerbate the number and density of the eye lesions in the condition.
The Avellino DNA Test for LASIK Eye Surgery provides a necessary level of safety by identifying patients with the condition and allowing them to find alternate treatments.
