Albinism

Albinism

Albinism is usually an inherited deficiency of the pigment melanin, and is responsible for the colour of the eyes, skin and hair. Along with the characteristic loss of colour, such people also tend to have visual problems like blurred vision, squinting and inability to bear normal illumination. If there is a presence of non-pigmented patches in these areas then go for a clinical diagnosis. Eye specialists prescribe appropriate dark glasses. Such patients are advised to apply sunscreens to protect the skin from harmful UV rays of the sun.
