Anyone know of anyone with ocular albinism? My friends had their beautiful baby girl on Christmas day and found out last week that she has it. The doctors told them that both parents had to be carriers of the gene for her to inherit it.... and that it effects how her eyes process light. They told them that she will always have astigmatism and that she will never be able to drive.
I've googled it and read up on it a little more and found that it effects 1 in every 50,000. And that children with ocular albinism can go on to lead perfectly normal, independent lives and can excel in normal classroom settings. I guess I was just wondering if anyone on here knew someone personally and can give me a more personal interpretation of it and what she will face in the future.
