Infantile Nystagmus Syndrome

Show Summary Details


Formerly known as congenital nystagmus, this form of nystagmus can occur in isolation or in association with other ophthalmic, neurologic, or endocrine abnormalities. While it does not usually cause oscillopsia, it can cause blurred vision. Consequently, affected patients sometimes request treatment. We review the clinical features of infantile nystagmus syndrome and present a contemporary approach to treatment.
