Foresight Health® Primary Open Angle Glaucoma


Our Foresight Health® single test for Primary Open Angle Glaucoma is ideal for breeders and owners who want the reassurance of genetic health testing.

Our DNA test results are accepted by the Kennel Club.

The guideline turnaround time for single tests is approximately 10-12 working days after the swab arrives at the lab. 

If you need more than two tests it is often more cost-effective to order the relevant Foresight Health® breed package.
