Ocular albinism type 1 (OA1) a non-progressive disorder. Visual acuity typically remains stable throughout life, even often slowly improving into the mid-teens. Although nystagmus usually develops within the first 3 months of life, it can diminish with time. However, it rarely completely disappears. Because the specific ocular signs and symptoms in affected people can vary, the condition may cause some people to be more visually impaired than others. People with OA1 have a normal life expectancy.
