Superior Oblique Myokymia

Show Summary Details

Preview

Monocular oscillopsia is an uncommon symptom that is often due to superior oblique myokymia. The diagnosis is frequently missed, because the eye oscillations in this condition are intermittent and often subtle. We discuss the evaluation and management of patients with suspected superior oblique myokymia in this chapter.
