Nystagmus is a vision condition in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements, often side-to-side, up-and-down, or in a circular pattern, that can result in reduced vision and difficulty with depth perception.  According to the American Optometric Association, Nystagmus is most commonly caused by a neurological problem which occurs at birth or develops in early childhood, although it can occur later in life.

February 7th is National Nystagmus Awareness Day and we encourage you to find out more about this visual impairment, how it is diagnosed, treatments and living with Nystagmus.
