Congenital Nystagmus

Children with congenital nystagmus are usually brought to the department because their parents have noticed that their eyes seem to be continuously wobbling about. Such abnormal and persistent eye movements might simply occur because the child cannot see (sensory nystagmus) or they might be caused by an abnormality of the normal control of eye movements (motor nystagmus). It is important to distinguish congenital nystagmus from acquired nystagmus because of a space-occupying intracranial lesion.
