In many cases, there is no reason specific reason for nystagmus.

Signs and Symptoms

The primary symptom of nystagmus is a rapid, uncontrollable movement of the eye. The movements may be present in one or both the eyes. These movements can be from side to side (Horizontal nystagmus), up and down (vertical nystagmus), or in a circle (rotary or torsional nystagmus). The person may move and keep the head in certain positions that help in reducing eye movement and facilitate better focus. A person with nystagmus may have blurred vision and complain of difficulty seeing in dark, sensitivity to light, dizziness, and problems with balance. Tiredness and stress tend to worsen the symptoms of nystagmus.
