Hello, Anon!

Thank you for writing.

For the benefit of our readers, albinism is a rare group of genetic disorders that cause the skin, hair, or eyes to have little or no color. Albinism is also associated with vision problems.

A genetic counselor can help you understand the type of albinism and the chances of having a future child with albinism. He or she can also explain the available tests.
