Focus on opthalmology
Focus on ophthalmology

Updated on 3 January 2018

Few medical specialties have benefited more directly from the recent revolution in genomic technology than ophthalmology. Massively parallel sequencing has now been demonstrated as a potent diagnostic tool for inherited eye disease, and the delineation of mutations that underlie patient diagnoses is becoming even more relevant due to dramatic advances in gene therapy for such disorders.
