Acquired pendular nystagmus often occurs in the setting of multiple sclerosis but can also occur in the syndrome of oculopalatal tremor. Because it often causes disabling oscillopsia, many affected patients request treatment. In this chapter, we discuss the clinical features and treatment of acquired pendular nystagmus.
