Refractive correction options were explored in a group of akonga (students) with albinism who were enrolled with Blind and Low Vision Education Network New Zealand (BLENNZ). Quantitative and qualitative results of spectacle wear, clear soft contact lens wear and tinted contact lenses with a clear centre pupil were assessed. We will share the experience of fitting contact lenses in this unique population along with the experience of akonga in this process.
