Hereditary Optic Neuropathy Panel

This product is only meant for customers who already purchased a Dante Genome Test

Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON), or sudden vision loss, is an inherited form of vision loss. It begins with painless clouding or blurring in one or both eyes, and then worsens with a loss of sharpness and loss of color vision.
Hereditary optic neuropathy is a condition in which the optic nerve is damaged, leading to vision loss and blindness. Hereditary optic neuropathy is caused by mutations in genes involved in mitochondrial function and energy production, and this panel tests for genetic variants that are known to affect these processes.
This panel is designed for individuals with a family history of hereditary optic neuropathy or individuals with symptoms of the condition, such as vision loss or color vision abnormalities. Genetic testing can confirm a diagnosis, provide information on disease severity and progression, and inform treatment and management decisions. Testing can also inform family planning decisions and provide reassurance for unaffected family members.

The analysis takes into consideration the mutation of germline DNA, it investigates SNP and Indel mutations up to 150 bp.
