Dr. Tim Conrad answered:

Should I be concerned if my son is albino 4 years old due to albinism eye sight weak and constant left right eyes movement is any cure?

Yes

Albinism
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.

Do people that have albinism have shifty eyes?

They might

Eye
People with ocular albinism can have nystagmus. This is a non-voluntary eye movement, most often horizontal. There is nothing that can be done to lessen it, but patients often can have very good vision and can lead normal "visual" lives.

Dr. Bruce R. Saran answered:

I have occular cutaneous albinism and my eyes are turning green. Is there any way to stop this?

No

Head-eye
Oculocutaneous albinism is a genetic defect of the enzyme in our body that produces melanin-and this determines iris color. There are no cures or treatments for this genetic condition. As the amount of melanin determines eye color, the answer is no, there is no way to change iris color.

Albinism is a group of 4 conditions, each caused by a specific gene mutation inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. When both parents carry the gene mutation, each of their children has a 25% chance of having OCA. See his pediatrician & a pediatric ophthalmologist for diagnosis & referral to a geneticist if he has it. Lack of melanin in the retina causes vision problems, so you need to know

Dr. Jay C. Bradley answered:

My 2.5 yo has some redness under his eyes. Is that the same as those when older people have black under eyes?

Possibly

Head-eye
Redness under the eyes of a small child could be many issues. The most common would be allergies or any other source of eye irritation leading to chronic rubbing. This is different from the black under the eyes of adults. You should have the child evaluated for the cause of the redness/inflammation so it can be properly treated.
