What we are now able to do is first examine your eye color genetics as parents to be, to determine if you carry the genes associated with the ability to produce a baby with a chosen eye color. If the necessary building blocks or codes are present, based on the tested genetics, we allow parents the opportunity to enter the program to produce embryos destined to be tested for general genetic health (euploidy), gender if desired and eye color genes.
These genetic results about each individual embryo will be presented to you, and together with your physicians, geneticist and IVF scientists, you will be offered the opportunity to specify which embryo or embryos you elect to have returned to you in the hopes of producing a healthy pregnancy. You will also be given the opportunity to store any healthy unutilized embryos for future transfer.
We are only offering eye color selection at this time in conjunction with our general genetic well-being and gender selection procedures. Eye color preference is available only as an “add-on” procedure to our general procedures. You will be provided additional information about all of the extensive genetic screening that we routinely perform in our IVF-PGS-PGD-Gender Selection program(s).
