Nystagmus treatment in iran

Nystagmus is a condition of involuntary (or voluntary, in rare cases) eye movement, acquired in infancy or later in life, that may result in reduced or limited vision. Due to the involuntary movement of the eye, it has been called “dancing eyes”.

In a normal condition, while the head rotates about an axis, distant visual images are sustained by rotating eyes in the opposite direction on the respective axis.The semicircular canals in the vestibule of the ear sense angular acceleration. These send signals to the nuclei for eye movement in the brain. From here, a signal is relayed to the extraocular muscles to allow one’s gaze to fixate on one object as the head moves. Nystagmus occurs when the semicircular canals are being stimulated (e.g. by means of the caloric test, or by disease) while the head is not in motion. The direction of ocular movement is related to the semicircular canal that is being stimulated.

What is the cause for nystagmus?

Some of the cases of congenital nystagmus may be hereditary. In some cases there is clearly a family background sometimes going back over several generations. In others the disorder appears to be a singular occurence. In cases of ocular albinism and cone dysfunction, it is known that there is a definite hereditary basis. Genetic research is one of the fastest growing areas of medicine in the nineties. It is likely to prove of great importance to those with eye problems such as nystagmus.

iranian surgeryHow does nystagmus affect people?

Nystagmus affects people in many ways and the effects vary from person to person.

Most people who have had the condition since childhood do not suffer from a constantly moving image (known as ‘oscillopsia’) most of the time, as their brains adapt to the movement of the eyes. However, people who acquire nystagmus in later life are unlikely to adjust so well and will suffer much more from the effects of oscillopsia.
Nystagmus often seriously reduces vision. The degree of sight loss varies from person to person and is also related to the underlying condition. Many sufferers are eligible to be registered as partially sighted or blind. Please note that most people registered blind have poor vision, not no sight at all.
