The MYOC Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1A Genetic Test is a specific diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify mutations in the MYOC gene, which have been linked to the development of open-angle glaucoma, the most common form of glaucoma. This condition is characterized by the gradual increase in intraocular pressure, leading to optic nerve damage and, if untreated, can result in progressive vision loss. The MYOC gene plays a crucial role in the eye’s aqueous humor outflow, and mutations in this gene can lead to its dysfunction, contributing to the development of glaucoma.

This genetic test is particularly important for individuals with a family history of glaucoma or those who have been identified as high-risk based on clinical assessments. Early detection through genetic testing can facilitate timely intervention, potentially slowing or preventing the progression of the disease. The test involves a simple collection of a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw or cheek swab, which is then analyzed in the laboratory for the presence of specific mutations in the MYOC gene.

Offered at a cost of 4400 AED, the MYOC Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1A Genetic Test at DNA Labs UAE represents a significant step forward in personalized medicine, allowing for targeted risk assessment and management strategies for individuals at risk of developing this challenging eye condition.

MYOC Gene Glaucoma open angle type 1A Genetic Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the MYOC Gene Glaucoma open angle type 1A Genetic Test for individuals who are at risk of developing open-angle glaucoma. This test can help identify mutations in the MYOC gene that may increase the risk of developing this specific type of glaucoma.

Test Details

The MYOC gene is associated with the development of glaucoma, specifically open-angle type 1A. This type of glaucoma is characterized by an increase in intraocular pressure due to a blockage in the drainage system of the eye, leading to damage to the optic nerve and potential vision loss.

NGS genetic testing, using Next-Generation Sequencing technology, can identify mutations in the MYOC gene that may increase the risk of developing open-angle glaucoma. This test can help individuals with a family history of glaucoma or those who are at risk due to other factors to understand their risk and take steps to prevent or manage the condition.

Early detection and treatment of open-angle glaucoma can help prevent vision loss and improve outcomes. NGS genetic testing can be an important tool in identifying individuals at risk and guiding appropriate management and treatment.
