Nystagmus is a condition that can cause severe vision problems, one of the main symptoms of the condition. Approximately 1 in 1000 babies are born with Nystagmus and live with it their entire lives as there is no cure for the condition. It can also be acquired later on in life through illness or side effects from medications. Use this day to educate yourself about the challenges of living with Nystagmus and all the efforts being put in to help find treatments and cures.
The Nystagmus Network sponsors International Nystagmus Awareness Day to promote worldwide support, fund research, and raise awareness for the eye condition.
