Genetic Eye Disorders

A genetic (or inherited) disorder is a condition that may be passed on from parents to their children through their genes.  Just as common traits such as facial features are passed from parent to child through the genes, an alteration in a gene that could lead to an eye disorder may be inherited. Often, the risk of occurrence for other family members can be predicted.
