BACKGROUND Retinal development normally involves migration of the inner retinal layers away from the fovea, migration of the cone photoreceptors into the fovea, and elongation of the photoreceptors over time. This process is arrested prematurely in albinism. However, because retinal development continues at least until the age of 4 years, when development arrests in albinism is uncertain. In this study we outlined the time course of retinal development in children with albinism. METHODS We… CONTINUE READING
