Albinism is actually a defect in amino acid metabolism. Normally the amino acid Tyrosine (Y) is converted into melanin (the pigment found in skin and hair). Those with albinism have a defective tyrosinase enzyme which performs this conversion.

Beautiful Albinism. How can one look so flawless? It's like looking at a porcelain doll.

Meir's milky eyes stared at the swelling landscape. She dropped her hand into the water. "One swell two. Ocean blue. Three swell four. Count some more. Five swell six--" Then it appeared. Tall as three of Meir's coral core boards, menacing as a shark fin. Meir stood with the ease of practice, slid her back foot until she saw the tip of her board rise from the water. Then she waited for the impact.

People with albinism always have problems with vision (not correctable with eyeglasses) and many have low vision.

In types with slight pigmentation, hair appears more yellow or red-tinged and vision may be better

the opposite of albinism called melanism,a recessive trait where the skin and fur are all black.... (proof that mistakes can be beautiful)

SOMETIMES THE MOST DIFFERENT IS ALSO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL....Why oh why do we higher creatures fear or shun all that is different from us. I think different is often the most beautiful. What a beautiful girl....so fragile and pale and lovely. SH.

One person in 17,000 in the U.S.A. has some type of albinism. A common myth is that people with albinism have red eyes. In fact there are different types of albinism and the amount of pigment in the eyes varies. Although some individuals with albinism have reddish or violet eyes, most have blue eyes. Some have hazel or brown eyes. However, all forms of albinism are associated with vision problem.

how is it possible to be so flawless when you express such an obvious flaw? albinism. its insane. one of the most phisically unattractive diseases as defined by society, made beautiful by a single girl.

Most children with albinism are born to parents who have normal hair and eye color for their ethnic backgrounds. Sometimes people do not recognize that they have albinism.

My daughter has Albinism also-only red hair and blue eyes from Changsha,Hunan!!!

Albinism is a condition in which a person has an often complete lack of pigment in their skin, hair, and eyes. In not only occurs in humans but in all other vertebrates. Unfortunately, people with albinism face discrimination as many are ignorant towards their appearance.
