Why Early Testing Matters to You and Your Family
In the past, genetic eye disorders like keratoconus and corneal dystrophy could only be diagnosed by a doctor physically examining the shape and appearance of the cornea. This meant the disease may be undiagnosed and continued to progressively worsen and permanently affect vision over time.
That is why early and accurate diagnosis with AvaGen™️ is so important to protecting you and your family’s vision today – for the things you’ll see tomorrow.
What is Keratoconus and Corneal Dystrophy?
Keratoconus – a genetic eye condition (or developed environmentally through dust, toxic fumes, and allergens) that occurs when the cornea, the clear, rounded front part of the eye, thins and bulges into a cone-like shape. Symptoms include:
- Blurred vision
- Seeing glare and halos around light
- Eye pain
- Sensitivity to light
Corneal Dystrophies – some sight threatening corneal dystrophies can be genetic eye disorders that run-in in families and cause changes in the cornea – ranging from swelling to buildup of abnormal material. Symptoms include:
- Vision loss
- Eye pain
- Dry eye
- Sensitivity to light and glare
- Feeling that something is in your eye
