Hi Ekinath,

To answer your question, as far as I know, ofcourse there are tests
available, however, the results of tests do not determine the
possibility in clear yes or no. This was what I was told.

Further, There is a department called Genetic Counciling at Sankara
Nethralaya at Chennai. I had been there and they are very straight
forward in talking about the possibility or otherwise.

You may advise your friend to go there and get the tests done.

All the best.

Thanks and warm regards,
