VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron and Dr. Michelle Skowron CAN CORRECTIVE LENSES FIX NYSTAGMUS? Nystagmus is a condition that causes the eyes to move uncontrollably. They may move from side to side, up and down, or in a circular pattern. Normally, the eyes adjust position automatically when you move your head to help stabilize vision and create a clearer image. The brain controls eye movement, but these areas of the brain don't work properly in people with nystagmus. The condition usually occurs in both eyes and can be either present at birth or acquired later in life. While acquired nystagmus may clear up on its own, there is no cure for those born with the condition. However, glasses or contact lenses can help by providing clearer vision, which helps slow down the eye movements. For those who are very nearsighted, LASIK or Visian ICL can help improve eyesight. The surgeon may advise you to take relaxation medication before the procedure to lessen the nystagmus. SKOWRON EYE CARE has been providing personal, cutting-edge eye care for patients in Elmhurst and surrounding areas since 1983. If it's been a while since you've had an eye exam, call our office today. At Skowron Eye Care, our mission is your vision. P.S. For people with both nystagmus and nearsightedness, LASIK surgery can improve vision to help relieve nystagmus symptoms. SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
