AS-The Diagnosis and Management of Corneal Dystrophies


Corneal dystrophies have both systemic and genetic components, and we are learning more about them each day.  What is that abnormality in your patient's cornea and what should you do about it?  You will learn via a layer-by-layer review of corneal dystrophies, utilizing the presenter's own clear images.  Special emphasis will be placed on each condition's association with systemic disease.  The newest development-in-office genetic testing for over 70 mutations of the TGFBI gene, commercially available in 2021-will be discussed in great detail.
