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

"We pride ourselves in offering our patients the latest technologies to make vision correction surgery even safer for our patients," said Dr. Tom Tooma , founder of NVISION Laser Eye Centers. "Offering the AGDS Test differentiates NVISION by adding a level of safety to the LASIK procedure that other laser eye centers cannot offer. We are very excited to be the first provider in the country and the only one in southern California to offer the AGDS Test."

The AGDS Test is easy and safe, involving just a simple mouth swab from a patient's cheek. The sample is then sent to Avellino Lab USA's certified molecular diagnostic testing lab. Within 24 to 48 hours, the results are provided to the NVISION physician to share with the patient. Based on a negative result, patients are able to proceed with the planned LASIK procedure with confidence. If an individual is identified as positive for the genetic mutation, he or she will be advised against having LASIK surgery and encouraged to take protective measures, such as minimizing exposure to UV light by wearing appropriate protective lenses, to help postpone the progression of ACD symptoms.

"NVISION's offering of the AGDS Test demonstrates their commitment to providing patients with the most innovative and state-of-the-art care," said Scott Korney , chief operating officer of Avellino Lab USA. "We are proud to work with NVISION in advancing our efforts to make LASIK safer for the thousands of patients who undergo eye vision correction surgery each year."
