Therapy

Patients with albinism should implement a series of measures to protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation.
They must resort to physical barriers (long-sleeved shirts, long pants and hats with a wide brim) and chemical barriers (sunscreen cream > SPF30) and should avoid overexposure to the sun during the hottest hours of the day.
Ophthalmologic care refers to the correction of myopia and astigmatism to achieve maximum visual acuity.
The ophthalmologic evaluation should be repeated annually.
Children with albinism should be placed in regular classes with special attention to their visual needs (large text written with a high contrast).
Rarely will they need to learn Braille.
