Focal Points 2018 Module: Genetics of Inherited Retinal Degenerative Diseases
Recent diagnostic and therapeutic advances have provided new hope for patients with inherited retinal degenerations. With each year, our understanding of these diseases, diagnostic tools and molecularly based treatments expand, making it a challenge to keep up with the latest advances.

This Focal Points module provides an overview of the genetics of selected retinal degenerative diseases, highlighting relevant clinical diagnostic features and applicable gene-based therapies.

Complete this module to:

  • Summarize the roles of genetic testing in providing diagnostic insights into retinal diseases and in facilitating appropriate patient enrollment in ongoing and emerging clinical trials.
  • Recognize clinical scenarios that suggest an underlying inherited retinal disease.
  • Discuss the inheritance patterns of these diseases.
