Nystagmus and oscillopsia

Oscillopsia is a common symptom in people with acquired nystagmus, yet few methods of measuring or quantifying oscillopsia exist. A measure of oscillopsia is needed to capture the impact of oscillopsia on individuals with nystagmus and the effect of any interventions for nystagmus and oscillopsia. This mixed methods research project will develop a patient reported outcome measure (PROM) for oscillopsia and measure the impact of oscillopsia in patients with nystagmus.

Keywords: nystagmus oscillopsia, orthoptics, optometry, ophthalmology
