The doctor should be called when a person with albinism exhibits symptoms such as photophobia that cause discomfort.
As well as suffering a headache, migraine sufferers often report visual disturbance and possible photophobia along with nausea and sometimes vomiting.
They frequently have poor visual acuity and are extremely sensitive to light (photophobia), which causes them to squint in ordinary light.
There may be large amounts of pus-like discharge, and symptoms may include intolerance to light (photophobia), watery mucus discharge, and tenderness in the lymph nodes near the ear that may persist for up to three months.
Their eyes may be very sensitive to light (photophobia) because their irises allow stray light to enter their eyes.
Like complete albinoes, this race suffers from photophobia, and is characterized by the albinotic facies.
It is naturally the most efficient agent in relieving the discomfort or intolerable pain of photophobia; and it is the best means of breaking down adhesions of the iris, and of preventing prolapse of the iris after injuries to the cornea.
