A free information resource on albinism is now available for eye health and sight loss professionals.
Albinism is a rare genetic condition which usually includes a high degree of visual impairment. Understanding Albinism explains the different types of albinism, their associated eye conditions such nystagmus
and astigmatism, along with related conditions such as Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome.
Roselle Potts, Chair of the Albinism Fellowship, said: “Until now, resources about this condition – which affects around one in 17,000 people in the UK and Ireland – have been relatively rare. We’re pleased to offer our new Understanding Albinism brochure to visual impairment professionals working with people with albinism.”
