Genetic Testing for Keratoconus


We are pleased to offer AvaGen - A genetic test to help determine keratoconus risk. If you are a keratoconus suspect, this is a great test to help identify your genetic risk factor for corneal dystrophies, such as keratoconus.

Ideal candidates:

  • Patients at risk for keratoconus (keratoconus suspect)
  • Patients with keratoconus who want to know if family members (siblings, children, etc) are at risk
  • Children with rapidly changing glasses prescriptions
  • Patients considering LASIK or PRK surgery who show suspicious refractive or corneal findings

Avagen is an easy, in-office test performed by a technician or doctor at the Contact Lens Institute of Nevada. A simple cheek swab is all it takes. Fast, easy, and no pain!

Once your unique results are available, you will be scheduled with one of the doctors to review your test results and answer any questions you may have.
