Nystagmus and Disorders of Ocular Stability

Track 6: Nystagmus and  Disorders of  Ocular Stability

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 is often called "dancing eyes". In a normal condition, while the head rotates about any axis, distant visual images are sustained by rotating eyes in the opposite direction on the respective axis. The semi circular canals in the vestibule sense angular acceleration. These send signals to the nuclei for eye movement in the brain. From here, a signal is relayed to the extra ocular muscles to allow one’s gaze to fixate on one object as the head moves. Nystagmus also occurs when the semi-circular 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 semi-circular canal that is being stimulated.
