NVISION Laser Eye Centers First in the Nation to Offer Avellino-GENE Detection System Test to Protect Patients from Blindness
Date:5/14/2013

MENLO PARK, Calif., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Avellino Lab USA, developer of the only genetic test available worldwide for Avellino Corneal Dystrophy (ACD), today announced that California-based NVISION Laser Eye Centers is the first provider in the United States to offer patients the Avellino-GENE Detection System (AGDS™) Test that makes LASIK safer. Prior to undergoing refractive surgery such as LASIK, the AGDS Test detects, with 100 percent accuracy, the ACD genetic mutation in which carriers are at an extremely high risk of experiencing eventual blindness as a result of vision-correction refractive surgery. NVISION Laser Eye Centers now offer Avellino Lab USA's AGDS Test at 10 of its 17 locations throughout California.

The AGDS Test is the world's first genetic test to detect ACD, a disease that causes cloudiness, specifically grey-white granular deposits on the corneas, which can lead to complete loss of sight. While ACD usually develops slowly, carriers of this genetic mutation are at an extremely high risk of experiencing diminished vision and eventual blindness should they undergo vision-correction refractive surgery such as LASIK, LASEK or PRK. Fortunately, the AGDS Test positively identifies with 100 percent accuracy if a person has the genetic mutation. By doing so, the test reduces the risk of patients with ACD having post-LASIK vision impairment or blindness and increases their confidence that they are avoiding unnecessary harm to their vision.
