 Only one out of 17,00 people have a form of albinism. Most albinos have blue eyes not stereotypical red or violet colored eyes. An even smaller amount of albinos have hazel, brown, or gray eyes. Most albinos don't even know that they have a form of albinism because they think albinos are people that have white skin, white hair, and red eyes. Since there is a lack of melanin in their eyes they could have Nystagmus, when your eyes jump and jerk in all directions. Albinos can also become cross-eyed because they have Strabismus, when the eyes don't work together as a binocular team.
