Albinos: Albinism is a defect in the genetics related to pigment production in the skin, eyes and some other parts of the body. Some have a complete lack of this gene; others a partial in less effective gene and so they are less pale and have fewer of the complications. A genetic specialist can work this out for you if you have one of these conditions.
