Homeopathy Medicine for Nystagmus
Nystagmus is a condition of vision where the eyes make uncontrollable, repetitive movements that can impair balance and coordination, reduce vision, and reduce depth perception. It is a symptom of diseases of either the vestibular or ocular systems and their interrelationship.
TYPES OF NYSTAGMUS
Congenital and acquired nystagmus are the two variations.
Usually, doctors do not know what is causing the child’s condition, but sometimes it is inherited (passed down from parents to children). Children with this condition tend to have it in both eyes, which move side to side. Nystagmus of this type typically begins in infants, usually between 6 weeks and 3 months of age.
Nystagmus in children usually manifests as some blurred vision rather than the sensation of things “shaking”.
This condition develops later in life and can be brought on by a variety of factors, such as severe illnesses or drug and alcohol abuse.
CAUSES OF NYSTAGMUS
The following can be connected to nystagmus:
- nystagmus running in one’s family
- Lack of pigmentation or color in the skin is known as albinism.
- a variety of eye conditions, such as cataracts, strabismus, and focus issues, can affect infants and children.
- Meniere’s disease and other issues with the inner ear
- Multiple sclerosis
- Age-related acquired nystagmus is frequently brought on by stroke.
- A head injury is a common reason why young people develop nystagmus.
- prescription drug use, such as taking lithium or anti-seizure drugs
- Alcohol or drug use
SYMPTOMS OF NYSTAGMUS
