What causes shaky vision?

Hello, my 7 year old daughter says her vision shakes for a few seconds at a time, this seems to happen now and again. But when it does it panics her. She does have yearly eye tests, but this problem has started quite recently.
Thank you for your time, Michelle.

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hello
It seems from the history that your 7 year old daughter is having shaky vision.
Shaking of vision can be seen in case of nystagmus in which the eyes also move.
This can be seen in conditions which affect the vision and cause dimunition of vision.
Hence I advice you to consult your ophthalmologist for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
