Hi, I'm a first year high school science teacher and I think I've been telling my kids the wrong thing about albinism. I told them all genetic conditions (like albinism) come in wide ranges of how they affect people, but full true albinos have pink eyes (as in the Iris). In your pictures you appear to have brown eyes, what's the actual incidence of having pink eyes?
Also, is there anything you want kids to know about albinism?
*edit: I scrolled down more after posting this and saw you have blue hazelish eyes. I thought blue was the absence of pigment in the eye (my eyes are) and anything else meant there was pigment. So how can you have a little bit of brown in there?
