Do you have macular degeneration?
Written by: Lindsay Florkey | Posted: 2015-04-29
We have started performing genetic testing for our patients with macular degeneration. This simple test gives your overall genetic risk and tells us what your risk of advancing to severe disease is over the next 2, 5, and 10 years. The test is quick and easy to administer. The test also gives us a vitamin recommendation specific to your genes. Recent research has shown that some individuals will actually get worse if they are taking the higher doses of zinc that were previously recommended. Please give us a call today if you would like to have this test performed. You must have a diagnosis of macular degeneration. You will be billed nothing at the time of the test, everything will be submitted to your insurance. The most that a patient would pay would be $25.
