Nystagmus

Experiences Of Nystagmus

Give the gift of hope

Nystagmus is a complex condition and affects people’s everyday lives in countless ways. We can broadly divide nystagmus into two:

  • Early onset nystagmus (also known as congenital nystagmus or CN)
  • Late onset nystagmus (also known as acquired nystagmus or AN)

There are many similarities between CN and AN, but also several differences. Probably the biggest difference is that people with AN tend to experience much more movement in their vision (oscillopsia) than those with CN. For this reason, we have divided the following section about experiences of nystagmus into two parts. The first is based on comments by people with CN, the second on comments by people with AN..

Psalm 139:13-16New International Version (NIV)
