Precision medicine can profoundly impact patient care and outcomes. The ability of genetic tests such as
AvaGen to detect possible pathogenic variants before symptoms even appear can empower eyecare professionals in
the clinical decision-making process.
With precision medicine, physicians can work with patients to create healthy eyecare strategies, begin
preventative measures years earlier, and choose the best possible treatment options.
Perspectives on refractive surgery and corneal dystrophy.
Understanding a patient’s genetic makeup offers clinicians additional relevant information to further elevate
care and outcomes, which is the ultimate goal.
AvaGen provides information to clinicians on whether and which genetic variants exist in their patients. With
this knowledge, clinicians can move forward with informed treatment and preventive plans of action.

Avellino offers a network of genetic counselors to support healthcare professionals and their patients for
interpreting and evaluating test results. Counselors are available to physicians and patients—free of
charge—when the genetic test report suggests that the patient is at risk for keratoconus and/or shows a
presence of a corneal dystrophy.
Contact us for more information and to access our genetic counselor network.
At Avellino, we strive to make the testing process as seamless as possible for eyecare clinicians and their
patients. That’s why we offer comprehensive resources and support for AvaGen, both pre- and post-test.
