The word “albinism” may make you think of light skin or hair. Albinism is a group of inherited disorders characterised by little or no melanin production. Most people with albinism have pale skin, eye conditions and are sensitive to the sun.
But albinism also can affect a person's eyes. When it does, it's called ocular albinism, a rare eye condition that happens much more often in boys and men than in girls or women.
