I am happy to share our recent publication on how to create a center for the treatment of Inherited macular dystrophies (IMD), which takes advantage of a multidisciplinary experience for an adequate global evaluation of the patient and of possible therapies. Recent therapeutic possibilities point to a clear need for genetic assessment services in tertiary referral hospitals. However, establishing such a service can be a complex task due to the diverse skills required and multiple professionals involved. This review aims to provide comprehensive guidelines to enhance the genetic characterization of patients and improve counseling efficacy by combining updated literature with our own experiences. Through this review, we hope to contribute to the establishment of state-of-the-art genetic counseling services for inherited macular dystrophies.
