If my baby is affected by ocular albinism, can she see?

It is important to understand that your child can see. Most children with albinism are not totally blind although many are legally blind. Albinism affects the retina and the optic nerves. The retina is the inside lining of the eye. It acts like a screen onto which pictures are projected. In eyes affected by albinism, the retina cannot produce a sharp image and the nerves do not transmit a clear image to the brain.
