Shreee Ram Hospital


Shree Ram Hospital and Eye Care Centre is dedicated to providing comprehensive services for the diagnosis and management of nystagmus, a complex eye condition characterized by involuntary, rhythmic eye movements that may result in impaired vision and balance. Nystagmus can present in various forms, including congenital nystagmus (present from birth) and acquired nystagmus (developing later in life), and can be associated with underlying medical conditions or neurological disorders.

Our experienced team of ophthalmologists and neuro-ophthalmologists at Shree Ram Hospital is committed to evaluating and treating patients with nystagmus to improve visual function and quality of life. We offer specialized diagnostic evaluations and personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs and underlying etiology.

Diagnosis of nystagmus typically involves a comprehensive eye examination and detailed medical history to assess the frequency, amplitude, and pattern of eye movements. At Shree Ram Hospital, we utilize advanced diagnostic techniques, such as electrooculography (EOG), videonystagmography (VNG), and neuroimaging studies, to accurately evaluate nystagmus and identify any associated underlying conditions or contributing factors.

Once a diagnosis of nystagmus is established, our team works closely with patients to develop personalized management strategies aimed at improving visual stability and reducing symptoms. Treatment options for nystagmus may vary depending on the underlying cause, severity of symptoms, and individual patient preferences. Some of the services offered at Shree Ram Hospital for patients with nystagmus include:

  1. Vision Correction: Prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses may be prescribed to improve visual acuity and reduce the impact of nystagmus-related visual disturbances. Prism lenses may also be used to help stabilize eye movements and alleviate symptoms.
  2. Vision Therapy: Our experienced vision therapists offer specialized exercises and techniques designed to improve eye coordination, visual tracking, and fixation stability in patients with nystagmus. Vision therapy can help patients develop compensatory strategies to better control their eye movements and improve visual function.
  3. Medication Management: In some cases of acquired nystagmus, medications such as anticonvulsants, muscle relaxants, or anti-anxiety medications may be prescribed to help reduce the intensity and frequency of eye movements and improve overall symptom control.
  4. Surgical Interventions: For patients with severe nystagmus or associated strabismus (eye misalignment), surgical interventions such as extraocular muscle surgery or implantation of intraocular devices may be considered to improve ocular alignment and visual stability.
  5. Multidisciplinary Care: Our team collaborates closely with other specialists, including neurologists, neurosurgeons, and rehabilitation therapists, to provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for patients with nystagmus. We address associated medical and neurological conditions, provide supportive care, and optimize treatment outcomes.

At Shree Ram Hospital and Eye Care Centre, we understand the challenges that nystagmus can pose and are committed to providing compassionate care and support to help patients manage their condition effectively. If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of nystagmus or has been diagnosed with this condition, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our experienced team for personalized evaluation and management. With our expertise and dedication to excellence, we are here to help you achieve better visual function and enhance your quality of life.
