A hereditary condition characterized by a variable lack of pigment in the eyes, skin, and hair. People with albinism may have pale pink skin and blond to white hair, but there are different types of albinism, and the amount of pigment varies. The irises of their eyes may be blue, violet, or even hazel in color. They are sensitive to bright light and glare and commonly have other vision problems such as nystagmus and strabismus. While some people with albinism can see well enough to drive, many have impaired vision or may even be legally blind. Tinted eyeglasses, bifocals, magnifiers, and other optical devices can help people with this condition.
