Parents and Family
We are contacted by many people whose child has just been diagnosed with nystagmus. Our first message is: Do not worry - nystagmus is not the end of the world. Nystagmus does present challenges, but these can be largely overcome. Have a look at our information, both on the web and as books and leaflets.
If you have had nystagmus since childhood, you have probably dealt with a lot of the problems it presents. However, many adults tell us it is encouraging to find out "I am not the only person with nystagmus" and to learn about how others manage. You will also want to keep up to date with medical and other developments, which you can do through joining Nystagmus Network.
We support medical and other research into nystagmus. We provide links to medical and university sites which we are glad to expand. Please contact us if you have ideas for research projects or have other comments.

4. Nystagmus
Richard L. Windsor, O.D., F.A.A.O. Laura K. Windsor. nystagmus is an involuntary rhythmic shaking or wobbling of the eyes.
TREATMENT: There is no known treatment, however, certain types of jerky nystagmus (commonly Grade I types) show spontaneous improvement in childhood (up to age 10). This type may also be amenable to muscle surgery (essentially, a repositioning of muscles to take advantage of the point of least nystagmus, or position of relative rest). IMPLICATIONS: With the exception of brief experiences of oscillopsia, most individuals with nystagmus perceive objects as being stationary. It is believed that the brain is responsible for the perceptual adjustment. Educationally, children with nystagmus (who may tend to lose their place in beginning reading instruction) may be helped through the use of a typoscope (card with a rectangular hole, to view one word or line at a time) or an underliner (card or strip of paper to "underline" the line being read). As children with nystagmus mature, they seem to need these support devices less often. Back to Contents or Back to SpEdEx Home

    A lot of confusion surrounds the term ‘congenital’. It is often used to describe a condition that begins when a child is very young. However, the phrase ‘congenital nystagmus’ (CN) is often used to describe a type of nystagmus. Therefore, I have identified this category to apply solely to the condition CN. Nystagmus that is classified as acquired may develop at any time. Therefore, some of these forms may also be considered to be 'congenital' if they develop in infancy. For example, Periodic alternating nystagmus [See Acquired nystagmus] This page contains the following information on congenital nystagmus: About Congenital Nystagmus (CN) When CN Occurs Characteristics of CN

Introduction In order to understand the clinical significance of nystagmus, it is helpful to first consider how the brain normally holds gaze steady . In health, three separate mechanisms collaborate to prevent deviation of the line of sight from the object of regard. The first is "fixation" which has two distinct components: 1) the visual system?s ability to detect retinal image drift and program corrective eye movements, and 2) the suppression of unwanted saccades that would take the eye off target. The second mechanism is the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) by which eye movements compensate for head perturbations at short latency, and so maintain clear vision during locomotion. The third mechanism is the brain's ability to hold the eye at an eccentric position in the orbit against the elastic pull of the globe's suspensory ligaments and muscles, which tend to return it towards primary position (the

Home Contact ANN Site Map Search ANN Site General Information about Nystagmus NYSTAGMUS is characterized by an involuntary movement of the eyes, which may reduce vision or be associated with other, more serious, conditions that limit vision. Nystagmus may be one of several infantile types or may be acquired later in life. The most common types of infantile nystagmus are 'congenital nystagmus' (CN) and latent/manifest latent nystagmus (LMLN). Many people with CN are also partially sighted; some are registered blind; few of these can drive a car, most encounter some difficulties in everyday life both practical and social and some lose out on education and employment opportunities. However, CN or LMLN by themselves do not necessarily reduce acuity substantially and many people with these disorders lead normal, active lives. Those with very poor vision usually have associated sensory deficits responsible for the greater part of their vision loss. There are many types of adult-onset acquired nystagmus. These are often associated with oscillopsia (the experience of the world 'wiggling'), poor vision, and loss of balance. Often acquired nystagmus is a result of neurological problems and may respond to certain drugs, depending on the cause of the nystagmus. DEPTH OF FIELD VISION is not reduced by nystagmus; it results from strabismus (misalignment of the eyes). Strabismus may sometimes accompany CN and always acccompanies LMLN. Sufferers of strabismus do not develop strong stereoscopic (3-dimensional) vision and may be prone to tripping or clumsiness. Coordination is usually adequate for most tasks, but strabismus sufferers are unlikely to excel at sports needing good hand to eye coordination.

Understanding Nystagmus Richard L. Windsor, O.D., F.A.A.O. Laura K. Windsor. O.D. Nystagmus is an involuntary rhythmic shaking or wobbling of the eyes. The term nystagmus is derived from the Greek word, “ nmstagmos”, which was used to describe the wobbly head movements of a sleepy or inebriated individual. Nystagmus has also been described as “dancing eyes” or “jerking eyes”. Doctors and researchers classify nystagmus by the characteristics of the eye movements like do they move back and forth like a pendulum or do they move slowly in one direction and then rapidly in another. Do the eyes move laterally or vertically and by how much? How fast do the eyes move? There are various methods of classifying nystagmus. Traditionally nystagmus has been divided into two groups. Sensory nystagmus is related to vision loss and motor nystagmus is related to the control of muscle function. There are over 45 types of nystagmus. To simplify our explanation of nystagmus, we will divide nystagmus into two basic types. The first is nystagmus that begins very early in life and is associated with vision loss. The second is called acquired nystagmus and is associated with neurological disorders occurring later in life.
Nystagmus from Early in Life
Early onset nystagmus often accompanies vision loss acquired at birth or soon after and may be one of the first signs that a child has a loss of vision. Studies suggest 1 in every 1000 children have nystagmus. In 80-90% of cases, it is a side effect of vision loss from eye diseases such as albinism, aniridia, optic nerve hypoplasia, achromatopsia congenital cataracts, coloboma or retinopathy of prematurity. This type of nystagmus is usually observed around the sixth to eighth week of life and is rarely seen before then. In about 10-20% of cases, it presents with mild vision loss not associated with other diagnosed ocular diseases. The discovery of nystagmus in a child is reason for an immediate examination!

Understanding nystagmus
What is nystagmus?
Nystagmus is an involuntary movement of the eyes - usually from side to side, but sometimes the eyes oscillate up and down or even in a circular motion. Most people with nystagmus have vision which is much worse than average - well below what is considered to be short sighted. Many people can register as partially sighted and a small number can register as blind.
Who is affected?
Nystagmus which appears in the first six months of life is called 'early onset nystagmus', or 'congenital' or 'infantile nystagmus'. The condition may also develop later in life when the term 'acquired nystagmus' is used.
What causes nystagmus?
Nystagmus in early childhood may be caused by a defect in the eye or the visual pathway from the eye to the brain. It occurs in a wide range of eye disorders of childhood such as cataract, glaucoma, some disorders of the retina and albinism. It may also be found in children who have multiple disabilities such as Down's Syndrome. Many children with nystagmus have no eye, brain or other health problems. In this case the condition is called 'congenital idiopathic nystagmus', or 'idiopathic infantile nystagmus', meaning that the condition is observed, or starts, early in life and the cause is unknown.

Early-onset nystagmus
Nystagmus is often a symptom of other eye conditions such as albinism. However, generally little is known about it. Here, Dr. Chris Harris gives some background to the condition and explains the underlying causes. Nystagmus is the medical term for a rhythmic 'wobbling' of the eyes. You can see a type of nystagmus by watching the eyes of a passenger who looks out of a side-window of a moving train or car - the eyes oscillate back and forth. This is quite normal. However, when nystagmus occurs spontaneously while the person is looking at a stationary object, it is abnormal and may indicate that there is something wrong with the eyes or the brain. A GP or paediatrician must be consulted. As a rough guide, spontaneous nystagmus that starts before about 6 months of age is called 'congenital' or early-onset nystagmus. Although the nystagmus may not actually start until the baby is a few months old, it is usually caused by a visual problem that is present at birth. Nystagmus that starts later than about 6 months is usually called 'acquired' nystagmus and it can be caused by a visual or a neurological problem. Infants with early-onset nystagmus are not at any special risk for neurological disease later in life. This article only covers early-onset nystagmus.
There are many underlying causes for early-onset nystagmus. Albinism (either affecting just the eyes or the skin and hair as well) is probably the most common association, but aniridia, cataracts, coloboma, cone dysfunction, congenital stationary night-blindness, optic nerve hypoplasia and many other conditions may also lead to nystagmus. This type of early-onset nystagmus is often called sensory-defect nystagmus. However, in 10-20% of babies with nystagmus no underlying visual problem can be detected and the nystagmus is labelled idiopathic

Causes and symptoms


Rhythmic, oscillating motions of the eyes are called nystagmus. The to-and-fro motion is generally involuntary. Vertical nystagmus occurs much less frequently than horizontal nystagmus and is often, but not necessarily, a sign of serious brain damage. Nystagmus can be a normal physiological response or a result of a pathologic problem. Description
The eyes play a critical role in maintaining balance. They are directly connected to other organs of equilibrium, most important of which is the inner ear. Paired structures called the semicircular canals deep in the skull behind the ears sense motion and relay that information to balance control centers in the brain. The eyes send visual information to the same centers. A third set of sensors consists of nerve endings all over the body, particularly in joints, that detect position. All this information is integrated to allow the body to navigate in space and gravity. It is possible to fool this system or to overload it with information so that it malfunctions. A spinning ride at the amusement park is a good way to overload it with information. The system has adapted to the spinning, expects it to go on forever, and carries that momentum for some time after it is over. Nystagmus is the lingering adjustment of the eyes to tracking the world as it revolves around them.

19. Nystagmus 1998
nystagmus may be defined as a periodic rhythmical ocular oscillationusually with a slow initiating phase and a corrective fast phase.

REFERENCES INTRODUCTION slow initiating component and a fast corrective component, as criteria in the definition of nystagmus [1]. During the examination, it may be quite difficult to determine whether 1) a particular oscillation has an initial slow component and should be classified as a "true nystagmus", or 2) it is composed entirely of saccades and should be classified as one of the "saccadic oscillations". It usually does not matter to the clinician if the rhythmic oscillation observed is truly nystagmus. What matters is whether the ocular oscillation is congenital or acquired . If it is acquired, are the characteristics localizing and do they require further investigation?
