There is no cure for nystagmus but the following treatments can be applied to reduce discomfort & allow clearer vision:
The brain controls eye movement. Your eyes move automatically to adjust when you move your head slightly. This stabilizes the image that you are looking at so you see a sharper image. In people with nystagmus, the areas of the brain that control eye movements do not work properly.
In some cases, it is not clear why someone has nystagmus. In other cases, nystagmus may be related to other eye problems.
Nystagmus can be related to the following:
Having a family history of nystagmus
Albinism (lack of color, or pigmentation, in the skin)
Inner ear problems, such as Meniere’s disease
Stroke (a common cause of acquired nystagmus in older people)
Head injury (a common cause of acquired nystagmus in younger people)
Use of certain medications, such as lithium or anti-seizure medications
Alcohol or drug use
