AMD (Age-Related Macular Degeneration) is a common eye disease that can occur in the third age and is the most frequent cause of vision loss after 50 years.
Through recent studies it has been shown that in some family nucleuses, but also in single individuals, there is a high predisposition of genetic order to have problems over time.
Knowing the genetic predisposition in advance can reduce the risk of onset or aggravation in case of pathology already in place.
Today this is possible thanks to tests that allow you to assess the genetic risk of Macular Degeneration.
In fact, there are tests carried out on samples taken in a non-invasive and completely painless way from saliva, which allow to identify the risk of developing Macular Degeneration in the future.
At SEKAL Microsurgery Rovigo the test by buffer for the AMD and the diagnostic study of the back of the eye with OCT, ophthalmoscopy exams and invasive and non-invasive angiography exams are performed.
