    This beautiful family got everyone talking all over social media due to the unique color of their eyes. They have ocular albinism which is a genetic condition with the lack of pigmentation at the back of the eyes.

    Here are pictures of Risiqot (Mother) and her kids Kaosarat and Hassanat. This beautiful pictures of them were taken by a photographer named Mofeba Muyiwa. A research was made that, behind every brown eyes there is a blue eyes. There is a thin layer of pigment on the surface of the eyes, if the pigment is far away the light can enter the stroma and reflect back the blue end of the spectrum.

    400 years ago after people left the tropical Africa for higher latitude, they moved to colder regions. For this reason they needed something to synthesize vitamin D in places where the UV light is lower which had caused changes in gene mutation.
