Genetics Home Reference:21 Ocular albinism is a genetic condition that primarily affects the eyes. This condition reduces the coloring (pigmentation) of the iris, which is the colored part of the eye, and the retina, which is the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. Pigmentation in the eye is essential for normal vision.

MalaCards: Ocular Albinism, also known as degenerative polyarthritis, is related to albinism and microphthalmia. An important gene associated with Ocular Albinism is GPR143 (G protein-coupled receptor 143), and among its related pathways are Regulation of Wnt-mediated beta catenin signaling and target gene transcription and Basal cell carcinoma. The drugs indomethacin and sulindac and the compounds l-dopa and kojic acid have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include eye, skin and brain, and related mouse phenotypes are pigmentation and vision/eye.
