|Albinism does not normally affect Lasik laser eye surgery,
however associated disorders may.
Albinism itself will normally not exclude a patient from conventional
or custom wavefront Lasik, Bladeless Lasik, PRK, LASEK, Epi-Lasik, RLE, P-IOLs or other refractive surgery procedures, however many albinos are affected
by nystagmus. It would be an absolute requirement that any laser
used would have a tracking system that could adjust to the rapid
eye movements of a patient with nystagmus.
Most lasers currently being manufactured for use in the United
States use a method of eye tracking that should reduce or eliminate
problems related to nystagmus and laser eye surger..
