Nystagmus Network

This entry was last updated: 16th July, 2018

Nystagmus is a complex eye condition that is characterised by involuntary movements of the eye. The eyes appear to wobble or flicker from side to side or up and down. Nystagmus is caused by abnormal functioning of the part of the brain which regulates eye movement and positioning.

The charity also provides a support network to families so that they have access to answers about various subjects relating to such a complex eye condition. Nystagmus is a relatively common condition which affects around 1 in 1,000 people in the UK. This means the support work that the Nystagmus Network undertakes is vital.
