The “OPTN Gene Glaucoma Open Angle Type 1E Genetic Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure offered by DNA Labs UAE, aimed at detecting mutations in the OPTN gene that are associated with open-angle glaucoma type 1E. Open-angle glaucoma is the most common form of glaucoma, characterized by a gradual loss of vision due to damage to the optic nerve, often without early symptoms. The OPTN gene plays a crucial role in the regulation of intraocular pressure and the normal functioning of the optic nerve. Mutations in this gene can lead to impaired ocular fluid drainage, increased eye pressure, and ultimately, optic nerve damage.

This genetic test is a powerful tool for early detection and risk assessment, allowing individuals to understand their susceptibility to developing this form of glaucoma. Early identification of genetic predispositions can lead to proactive monitoring and timely interventions, potentially preserving vision. The test involves collecting a DNA sample, usually through a blood draw or a cheek swab, which is then analyzed for specific genetic variations in the OPTN gene.

DNA Labs UAE offers this test at a cost of 4400 AED. By providing this service, DNA Labs UAE enables individuals and families to make informed decisions about their eye health and take preventative measures against one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. It is especially beneficial for those with a family history of glaucoma, as it offers a deeper insight into their genetic risk factors.

Test Details

The OPTN gene is associated with glaucoma, specifically open-angle type 1E. This type of glaucoma is characterized by a gradual buildup of pressure within the eye, which can damage the optic nerve and lead to vision loss if left untreated. NGS (next-generation sequencing) genetic testing can be used to analyze the OPTN gene for mutations or variations that may increase the risk of developing open-angle glaucoma. This type of testing can provide valuable information for individuals with a family history of glaucoma or those who are at increased risk due to other factors such as age or ethnicity. NGS genetic testing for the OPTN gene can help identify individuals who may benefit from early detection and treatment of glaucoma, as well as those who may be at increased risk for the condition and could benefit from preventative measures such as regular eye exams and lifestyle changes.
