hello,
first find out ur cause of nystagmus after consulting a opthalmologist.Removing the inciting cause if possible (eg, intracranial tumors, ocular media opacities).if refractory errors are there it should be cured first bcz it may be the cause of nystagmus.extraocular muscle surgery may be helpful. but follow the advice of opthalamologist.

Hi, My Son 10 months old diagnosed with congenital nystagmus, and after complete eye check up he has -2.25 cylindrical on both eyes.Does it relate with nystagmus ?My pediatric ophthalmologist suggest me to wear glasses immediately and after one month if there is improvement in his eyes (Nystagmus) then its fine otherwise we need to rule out other cause of nystagmus by going through MRi scan for cause of nystagmus.Will his power going to increase as he gets older? is it a serious problem for his vision or development of his brain ? or IQ?will he lead a normal vision life?

i am a girl of 17. By birth i am suffering from complete color blindness.I also have nystagmus. I feel very difficult to see in sunlight. I cannot open my eyes well in places with more light. In bright light i have to make my eyes very small so that i can see a little. I feel something is obstructing my sight in the middle part. I even cannot see on the board which has effected my study a lot. I have lost many oppourtunities because of this problem. Doctor said it is just nystagmus here in Nepal but i feel it is cone dystrophy. Can you say me what it is? if it is cone dystrophy then is the treatment possible? I really hope there is something which can make me a normal girl. I want to live a normal life.. please help me

hi sir im a resident physician , we have this clinicopathologic conference case here, i would just like to ask your opinio with our case...hope you can help us with the diagnosis and differentials.... General Data This is a case of a 27 year old female, single, Catholic from Samar, admitted for the first time due to severe throbbing headaches and enlargement of the abdomen. History of Present Illness Condition started 8 months PTA, when she suddenly felt severe throbbing headaches while lying down, occurring alternately between the right and left sides of the head, lasting approximately an hour with associated nausea. The pain would be slightly relieved by Paracetamol . This was also associated with blurring of vision. The patient was noted to have light perception , but other figures were described as “cloudy”. There was also notable enlargement of the abdomen prior to headaches, no change in the frequency of bowel movement (defecates every other day) as claimed by the patient. She denied of any intimate contact. Seven months PTA, the headache and nausea persisted, this time associated with dizziness. Symptoms progressed until 5 months PTA, when the patient consulted a neurologist . She was diagnosed to have an intracranial tumor. Ophthalmologic examination was also sought by the patient. She was also referred to a surgeon and gynaecologist for the evaluation of abdominal enlargement. There were episodes of difficulty in urination, more felt at the latter part of voiding. Four months PTA, consultation was done in another institution. A skull x-ray was taken and was found to be unremarkable. A cranial MRI examination was advised to patient but deferred due to financial constraints. 1 week PTA, the cranial MRI was eventually done and the patient was subsequently advised admission. Ultrasound of the abdomen was also done which revealed a large complex mass in the left ovary. Review of Systems (+) unquantified weight loss (-) loss of consciousness (-) cough nor colds (-) dyspnea (+) easy fatigability (+) slight chest pain (+) slight tenderness on the abdomen (+) dysuria (-) bleeding tendencies Personal History: occasionally smokes 3-8 sticks per day since 18 years old. Family History: (+) Hx of diabetes mellitus , hypertension, and emphysema Past Medical History: No previous asthma, no food and drug allergies; S/P appendectomy 2 years ago Physical examination: conscious, coherent, ambulatory individual who was not in respiratory distress Weight: 46kg, Height 5’3”  BMI: 17.99 Vital signs: BP 120/70, PR 72/min, RR 28/min, Temp 37.9C SHEENT: (+) pale palpebral conjunctivae, anicteric sclerae, no naso-aural discharge; tonsils and posterior pharynx were slightly hyperemic with thin film of yellowish secretion, neck was supple, no palpable lymph nodes. Chest/Lungs: (+) symmetrical in expansion, with prominent rib cage, (-) retractions and clear breath sounds. The breasts are symmetrical but there was a palpable nodule approximately 4cm which is movable with delineated borders. Heart: precordium was adynamic with normal rate and rhythm Abdomen: globular with fundic height of 29cms, slightly tender, no fluid wave, vague bowel sounds Extremities: No gross deformities noted, Pulses were full and equal. Course in the Ward: On admission, CBC showed anemia of 8.0mg/dL, leukocytosis of 13,000/cu.mm, platelet count of 284,000. Two units of FWB were transfused. Urinalysis revealed sugar - negative, albumin - 3+, pus cells - 50/hpf. Blood chemistries showed: Blood Chemistry Results FBS 120mg/dL BUN 24mg BUA 5.5mg/dL Creatinine 1.4mg/dL Total Cholesterol 179mg/dL Triglycerides 125mg/dL HDL 55mg/dL LDL 120mg/dL ALT 24mg/dL AST 21mg/dL CXR: slight prominence of the hilar lymph nodes with minimal infiltrates The patient still experienced throbbing headaches, still feverish and was given antipyretics and was hooked with IV line. On the 2nd hospital day, nephrology consult was done for proteinuria. Ultrasound of the kidney, urinary bladder, liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, pancreas and spleen showed these organs to be normal. Ultrasound of the pelvic organs revealed an enlarged complex left ovarian mass. There was a low-grade fever with throbbing headaches notably milder than the 1st day. On the 4th hosp day, the throbbing headaches still persisted. CT scan revealed an extra-axial tumor with few calcification and cysts formation, probably benign. She was scheduled for CP clearance prior to surgery. On the 5th hosp day, the patient was still febrile, given antibiotics and antipyretics. A few hours later, the patient experienced headaches not relieved by NSAIDs. On the 7th hosp day, high grade fever recurred, notably drowsy, anasarcous with no significant change in the urine output. Blood chemistries showed hypernatremia, hypokalemia, hypoalbuminemia, hyperglycemia and elevated levels of AST. Potassium replacement was done. Insulin was also given. Few hours later, the patient became stuporous and hypotensive with coarse rales from mid to base on both lung fields. Dobutamine and epinephrine were started. She was subsequently intubated. On the 8th hosp day, the patient remained febrile and hypotensive. Furosemide was given and titrated due to further increasing abdominal girth and edema of the face and extremities. Fluconzaole 200mg/NGT OD was started. Patient unfortunately expired several hours later.
