Home saliva test tells risk of AMD

Canadian company ArcticDx Inc. has introduced the availability of a test specifically designed to determine one's inherited risk for Age-Related Macular Degeneration.
The president of ArcticDX, Greg Hines has stated “This will be the first time that clinicians will be able to diagnose the eye condition macular degeneration before symptoms arise. This provides the opportunity for targeted patient education and routine eye examinations that offer early detection and disease management. Macular degeneration is a disease that can be arrested but it is not reversible. It is important to offer early treatment regiments that may arrest the eye disease before significant loss occurs.”
There is now a website dedicate to this product: Macula Risk
