Hi every one
 
do you think this could be a symptom?
 
I was just wondering if any one has experienced an eye symptom that is sort of like
when you zoom out of a camera but its very quick like a quick reverse for a second.?
 Bit hard to explain.
 
Would be great to know if any one else has had this or am i just seeing things.
 
Thanks
 
Barbie

Hey Barbie!!

Gosh..that's an odd one! I can tell u that i've experienced shaky vision...where my vision is like it just jumps up and then back down...like it's a cut out of my view...but i don't have ON. Never found any reason for anything like that. That said, i'm not sure what to make of u'r vision probs, but maybe it's something like i experienced. Sorry, this is no help at all! Just thought i'd share and maybe in this and other posts we'll both figure it out! :)

Rhonda, your shaky vision description sounds like an almost classic description of nystagmus.  Both of you might want to do a google search and see if that fits.

Hey Uppity!

Thanks! I can't remember what i looked at when this last happened, but i'll be researching this today. It hasn't happened in quite a while, so i haven't thought about it since then.

Barbie...maybe we've got an answer. :)

I have nystagmus also. Mine will go from the jerking side to side and also what I call rolling. If you remember the older televisions that the screen would roll up and down and you could adjust them to get the screen to stay straight. That is what my vision does occasionally.

I have only been dx with the side to side though, because that is what I was experiencing one time at the neuro's office.

Uppity, great job on picking up on that!

Hey thank you guys and great job uppity

this is what i found:

Nystagmus Arising Later in Life
While vision loss before birth will result in nystagmus, loss of vision occurring later in life does not usually cause nystagmus. Thus, a patient with age related macular degeneration would not show nystagmus while a child with achromatopsia would develop this condition.

Nystagmus can be acquired later in life due to neurological dysfunction such as a head injury, multiple sclerosis or brain tumors. Unlike nystagmus acquired from early in life, patients with late onset nystagmus usually notice movement in their vision related to the movement of their eyes. This is called oscillopsia. Oscillopsia causes a person to have vertigo or dizziness related to the new movement they experience in their vision.

Late onset nystagmus is more likely to be directional. The eye will move slowly in one direction, then quickly move back. The nystagmus may change as the patient looks in different directions. The unexplained onset of nystagmus in an adult may indicate a serious neurological disorder and an immediate examination is indicated!


Verrrry interesting dont you think!

I have to say it has only just happened to me recently and only few time but i think i will write it down
in my diary just incase it helps with the puzzle

Hi Barbie -

Great article! I was blind at birth in my right eye and do have nystagmus in my blind eye. Upon reading my dr's notes a couple weeks ago, I was complaining to her about my vision 'jumping' in my good eye and she did right down that I have oscillopsia in the good eye. Thanks for the better explaination, it helps me understand what my eyes are going through.
