Congenital Cataracts Panel

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

A congenital cataract refers to an opacity in the lens of the eye present at birth, causing haziness in vision. Without treatment, congenital cataracts can potentially lead to blindness. The opacity may affect either the entire lens or a portion of it. Treatment, often involving cataract removal surgery, depends on the severity of the condition. Congenital cataracts can occur in isolation or as part of a genetic syndrome. Some genetic conditions with early-onset cataracts may be identified through routine newborn screening.
This panel is suitable for individuals with a personal or family history of congenital or early-onset cataracts. While cataracts can be diagnosed without genetic testing, identifying the specific pathogenic variant can enable healthcare professionals to offer tailored care and evaluate the risk for associated conditions.

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