Ocular Albinism refers to a visual disorder whereby the vision is either partially or completely affected. This occurs due to reduction of pigmentation or color in the iris or the retina where the light is received. Sometimes optic nerve pathways are affected too which leads to involuntary eye movements, heightened sensitivity to light, difficulty in perceiving depth and regular vision. It usually doesn't occur in conjunction with other forms of albinism, but is seen to develop along with hearing problems.
