When the make-up was re-used for Ra'ghoratreii, the white lenses were dropped (as can be seen in the image above).
The actor does wear lenses, though: brilliant blue ones! And they really hampered his vision, according to an interview he did a few weeks after the film came out. (I understand he was ready to put his boot in the makeup artist's ass.)

If the Efrosians were all blind
IIRC, it's the FASA "ST IV Sourcebook" which speculates that Efrosians can see in certain lighting conditions, eg. the "red alert" state of the Saratoga bridge in ST IV.

Finally, Altoss and Fellen are both female Efrosians, which have never been seen on screen.

Efrosians by Therin of Andor, on Flickr

Although the actress didn't necessarily assume she was Efrosian, the Federation president is seen escorting (or being escorted?) into the conference a pale-haired female, of similar orange complexion to the President, in the ST VI theatrical trailer. Before I read the actress' online comments, I had assumed she was intended to be the President's consort, rather than just an aide.
