Nystagmus is a condition in which your eyes make rapidly, repeatedly and unbridled movements These eye movements can affect your vision, depth perception, balance and co-ordination.
Nystagmus causes and threat factors include
• optic nerve complaint/disorder.
• Underdeveloped control over eye movements.
• Inner eye conditions, similar as Meniere’s disorder.
• Head trauma.
• Complaint of the central nervous system.
• Albinism (lack of coloration in the skin).
• Multiple sclerosis( MS).
• Certain treatment, similar as antiseizure medicines.
• Eye problems in babies, including crossed eyes, cataracts and concentrating problems.
• Alcohol or medicine use.
• Parllel/Horizontal nystagmus involves side- to- side eye motion.
• Vertical nystagmus involves over- and-down eye movements.
• Rotary, or torsional, nystagmus involves indirect movements
• Shaky or blur vision.
• Balance problems.
• Nighttime vision problems.
In the age of three to six weeks the symptoms are shown in children's. This type of nystagmus is infantile, meaning people are born with it. In some cases, it’s passed down to children from their parents, but the exact cause is n’t always clear. Children with infantile nystagmus generally have it in both eyes. The main symptom is blur vision.
Acquired, or acute, nystagmus can develop at any period of life. It frequently occurs due to injury or disorder. Acquired nystagmus generally occurs due to events that affect the inner ear.
Nystagmus can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye test. Testing for nystagmus, with special significance on how the eyes move or turn , may include
• Sufferer history to determine any symptoms the patient is experence the presence of any general health problems, treatment taken, or environmental factors that may be contributing to the symptoms.
• Vision Acuity test measure to assess the extent to which vision may be affected.
• A refraction to determine the that the lens power required to compensate for any refractive error
• Testing how the eyes concentration, move and work together. In order to check a clear, single image of what's being viewed, the eyes must effectively change focus, move and work in simultaneously. This testing will look for problems that affect the control of eye movements or make it tough to use both eyes together.

• A neurological examination.
• Eye- movement recordings.
• Imaging tests, like CT scanning or MRI, to capture scanning image of your brain.
