Genetic eye diseases arise from mutations that compromise the structure and functionality of the eyes. A genetic eye specialist is essential for diagnosing and managing these conditions, which often lead to significant vision impairment. Stargardt Disease and Retinitis Pigmentosa are notably prominent among the wide range of diseases they address.
The primary risk factors for these genetic eye diseases are centred on hereditary influence. Individuals with a family history of such conditions face a significantly heightened risk of developing them. It is of utmost importance for individuals, particularly those with a family history of these diseases, to regularly attend eye examinations.
Although no definitive cures are available, advancements in research constantly enhance the management techniques which our Genetic Eye Specialists can provide.
