No-Cost Genetic Testing
The Foundation’s best-in-class genetic testing program enables any eye care professional in the US to order no-cost genetic testing through the Foundation’s My Retina Tracker Genetic Testing Program and genetic counseling for patients clinically diagnosed with an IRD.
The partnership includes genetic testing provided by Blueprint Genetics, which utilizes a state-of-the-art genetic testing panel for IRDs, and genetic counseling from InformedDNA, which are experts in helping patients understand what the test results mean for them and their families.
Also, patients can upload information about their condition to the My Retina Tracker Registry to get on the radar screen of researchers and therapy developers around the world, including those recruiting for clinical trials for emerging therapies.
Dr. Caesar Luo of Bay Area Retina presents the Foundation's My Retina Tracker Genetic Testing Program which is available at no cost to patients with a clinical diagnosis of an inherited retinal disease. The patient's eye doctor orders the test online from Blueprint Genetics at BlueprintGenetics.com/Nucleus/
