Nystagmus is an eye condition which develops among children or at least at a very early age. As a result of this disorder, the eyes are perpetually or intermittently engaged in an involuntary dancing movement. This prevents the optical lenses from focusing and thus leads to reduced and worsened vision. Although congenital in most of the cases, Nystagmus can also be caused by various external reasons like administration of wrong pharmaceutical drugs, alcoholism and toxicity, and internal reasons like nervous system problems.
