A research team at Moorfield’s Eye Hospital in London, headed by Maria Theodourou, is conducting an investigation into how the vision and nystagmus develop in young children.
Until the end of 2017 they are looking to recruit infants and young children (up to 3 years of age) with idiopathic nystagmus to take part. So, provided your child does not have a known cause for their nystagmus, they may be eligible.
The study will involve checking your child’s vision at a Moorfield’s clinic in London, testing for glasses (refraction) and assessing whether your child’s eyes are straight or whether they have a squint. They will also take recordings of your child’s eye movements, using a video camera, while he or she is sitting on your lap watching a large screen. This typically takes 20-30 minutes.
