Albinism and Age-related macular degeneration

Mr Jay Self (Consultant Ophthalmologist) and members of the vision research team are interested in discovering why, to their knowledge, Albinism and Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) have never been seen in the same patient, although AMD affects 1/3 of people over the age of 75.

Also the retina loses function in older animals with Albinism but, apparently, not in humans.

If anyone reading this post is aged over 60 and has Albinism, please contact Jay by email at J.E.Self@soton.ac.uk .  If you know anyone who meets this criteria please do share our message with them and ask them to make contact with Jay.  Thank you.
