Albinism – from the perspective of a 9 year old daughter of an adult with albinism


You can view a PDF of the contents of a talk by Dr. Brian Evans here.

Dr. Brian Evans was a champion of people with albinism. His insight and knowledge into the condition which he had, undiagnosed until adulthood, are extraordinary. An engineer for most of his life and an optometrist in the latter stages, Brian’s talks were always informative, engaging and thorough.
Sadly, Dr Evans passed away in 2012, but his legacy of albinism information remains. We thank him for his generosity in making his research available.
Viewing the notes without the commentary is less than ideal, but we trust you are able to source the information you require regarding albinism.
