My friend has just delivered a baby boy who is unfortunately suffering from albinism. And even though we all know that it is not something that serious, it is still an annoying condition. And I guess life will not go easy on a little guy. So, can albinism be cured?

Unfortunately, it cannot. It is a condition that is genetic in its nature. The child has inherited some recessive genes from his parents and now suffers from the lack of melanin, pigment that gives us the color. And that is not the only thing. Since there is no pigment in eyes, they are very sensitive to light. And this is the most common type. There is other, which includes easy bleeding, and several forms that might be dangerous. But I guess he has OCA2 type, one if the light forms.
