Yes


Hopefully your son is seeing a pediatric ophthalmologist on a regular basis. The blindness associated with albinism is not curable and you will need support raising a blind child. The eye movement is called nystagmus and is expected in a blind child.

Yes.


Albino is a recessive trait, meaning that it is possible for neither parent to be an albino, and by chance to have no other relatives who cannot make melanin in their skin and hair and eyes.

Albinism


Albinos inherit a deficiency in a gene which makes pigment. Pigment is protective against sun and other environmental influences It is usually a recessive and therefore the abnormal gene is in both parents with a 25% of albino offspring (higher if the parent is albino themselves). Multiple body systems can be affected including vision. Sun sensitivity is extreme.

Albinism is a genetic disorder that cannot be cured. It's your genes that determine skin color, hair color, eye color, etc. Albinism is a genetic defect in the production of melanin which gives skin, eyes, and hair their color.

Frankly speaking no. THis a genetic issue and there is no cure. With regard to the eyes - it is suggested that you wear sunglasses and stay out of the direct light and sun.

Albinism is a genetic disease of the enzyme that produces melanin. Genetic testing is available for the defective genes and a "hair bulb assay"-testing the hair follicles for the defective enzyme is also available.
