Abstract

The retinal fixation behavior of 17 albinos was examined whilst they fixated a stationary target. An optical system was arranged so that the motion of the target on the retina, due to the nystagmus, could be videorecorded. Eye movements were monitored simultaneously. Eight of the 17 subjects were judged to use consistently a retinal location compatible with the anatomical position of the fovea. The implications of this for subjects with foveal hypoplasia are discussed.
