What causes shaky vision leading to dizziness?

Lately I ve been experiencing extremely shaky vision. When it occurs, I try to stare at a fixed object so it ll stop, but that hasn t been helping lately. The object continues to move in my field of vision. It makes me kind of dizzy even though I m sitting still. I do have a history of astigmatism, but other than that my vision is great.

Hello
It seems from the history that you are having shaky vision.
Shaking vision is called as nystagmus. Nystagmus when associated with dizziness requires neurological evaluation.
Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
