This is a vision related autosomal recessive condition. It is a genetically inherited condition that affects the skin and eyes. It can lead to pigment deficiencies in the hair, skin, and the eyes as well. An inability to create the normal range of pigment cells in the iris and retina characterises this condition. It can also be lined with other conditions like nystagmus.
HOW IS OCULAR ALBINISM DIAGNOSED?
This disorder is diagnosed by the characteristic signs and symptoms exhibited by the patient. An eye test could be performed for further confirmation.
HOW IS OCULAR ALBINISM TREATED?
Glasses or contact lenses can greatly improve vision. Dark glasses or a hat with a brim can help to reduce sun sensitivity.
