We compared retrospectively the distribution of refractive errors in a sample of adolescent and adult albinos (n = 19) with that in persons with idiopathic congenital nystagmus (CN) (n = 46), whose eye movements are similar to those of albinos but whose visual acuity is better. The distribution of spherical-equivalent refractive errors is more broadly distributed and slightly less myopic in albinos than in persons with idiopathic CN. On average, albinos also have more astigmatism (primarily… CONTINUE READING
