Primary Lens Luxation (PLL)  DNA Test - from an approved laboratory (done once Optigen price is 90.00)
PLL is an important inherited disease of the eye that is associated with disintegration of the zonule fibers that hold the
lens in place. Once the lens is displaced from its normal position, i.e. it “subluxates” or “luxates”, serious and often
painful secondary glaucoma can occur; blindness is a common outcome.  PLL is always a bilateral condition however
there may be a period of several months or longer between the points when the two lenses luxate.

rcd4-PRA (Late Onset PRA) (Done once Optigen price is 90.00)


rcd4-PRA is a Late Onset PRA (LOPRA)
The disease caused by the C2orf71 mutation does not typically result in vision loss until dogs are in their senior years--
beyond 7 years of age. The initial data cited in the AHT publication indicate that the average age of onset of PRA
symptoms in dogs that inherit two copies of the C2orf71 mutation is 10 years of age however variation in age of onset is
common in many forms of PRA and some dogs may not show symptoms of rcd4-PRA until they are 12 or older.
