Wrong. Albinism is a mutation that causes the lack of melanin which means the pigments in the skin and eyes do not form - so the eyes would be read in a true albino. There are other conditions which cause lack of pigment, also genetic mutations, and are similar to albinism. For example, an 'albinoid' which is essential the same except it is just a diminished amount of melanin. However this raven here as well as the pretty snake there are more likely to be 'leucistic' again another condition from lack of skin pigments

albinism is caused from lack of melanin. which is responsible for brown orange and yellow tones and pigmentation. it is the reason people tan and have brown hair. the lack of melanin does not mean your body is unable to produce blue tones. in fact it is more common for albinos to have blue eyes rather than red.
