LASIK is one of the safest procedures available today. And now, with advancements in eyecare technology, your LASIK experience has an additional level of personalization and safety.
We are pleased to announce that the Avellino DNA Test is now available for all LASIK patients at NVISION Laser Eye Centers. In fact, NVISION was the first provider in the nation to offer this innovative technology.
It’s fast and simple
A cotton swab sample is taken on the inside of your cheek. Within 48 hours we’ll have your results and confirm your candidacy for LASIK.
Why is the Avellino test important?
This test provides an added level of safety by notifying NVISION of those patients who should not have LASIK due to a hereditary condition known as Avellino Corneal Dystrophy. Because of this condition, 1 in 870 people are not a candidate for LASIK.
Avellino DNA Testing only at NVISION – another example of the NVISION Standard of Excellence that has made us a leader in eye care since 1999.
