In brief: Lack of eye pigment

This is an inherited condition in which the normal eye pigment cannot be produced due to a genetic defect.
Persons with this have pink irises, lowered vision, eyes that frequently dance (nystagmus) and maldevelopment of the macula. Their lashes are pure white in color. Almost eye with complete disease, have little pigment elsewhere, cannot withstand sunlight, and have white hair; pale skin.
