Not necessarily, especially with fish and herps. A lot of leucistic fish (gold neons, gold pristellas, chocolate albino plecos) are leucistic but have red eyes. They're not albinos - although they generally look just as cool. :)
FWIW, all the leucistic fish I've ever had have been sighted. I had a 15 year old chocolate pleco and then got another just a few months ago, I've had gold pristellas, and my old roomie had gold neons. All those fish could see. Oddly, albino angels are sighted, as are albino tinfoil barbs.
It just seems to be the bettas that are blind when albino/red eyed.
Also, my pure white cat... is deaf.
Blind fish. Deaf cats. ALL I WANT ARE SOME PETS THAT WORK RIGHT!!! (I kid, of course. I'd literally die for my kittyboy.)
