Emerging clinical trials and treatment for Inherited Retinal Diseases (IRD) are providing hope to patients and families where previously no options were available. To gain access to such interventions, one must obtain a correct genotype. To get to that genotype, care phenotyping will lead to appropriate testing. During this live webinar, Dr. Levin will discuss key tips to deeply phenotype patients and then select and use genotypic testing to arrive at the most accurate gene based diagnosis. Questions received from registration and during the webinar will also be discussed live.
