People who have albinism tell me that it stops them being able to focus clearly on things in detail e.g. sometimes it is hard to read phone numbers as all the figures blend into each other. Reading vertical lines on a graph is difficult, they either turn the paper around or tilt their head to one side. This is the same as reading the spine of a book on a shelf, you have to turn your head to a ninety-degree angle to read what is written. If you are tired or stressed the Nystagmus may get be worse, making you a little clumsy and unable to judge the distance of things away from you.
