Chil­dren liv­ing with al­binism of­ten have low vi­sion. They are par­tic­u­larly sus­cep­ti­ble to skin can­cer, es­pe­cially in sun­ex­posed coun­tries such as ours and have to al­ways wear dark glasses, wide- rimmed hats, very high fac­tor sun­screen (even on the lips) and longsleeved cloth­ing. With poor care, peo­ple with al­binism can and do die un­nec­es­sar­ily early of pre­ventable dis­eases.
