Current nystagmus trials

Thanks to our close partnership with the UK centres of excellence, you can help steer the future of nystagmus research.


Mr Vijay Taylor at Moorfields Eye Hospital is appealing for people with congenital idiopathic nystagmus aged between 18 and 50 years to help him investigate the phenomenon of visual crowding in nystagmus. Click the link to find out more.


Albinism researchers in Southampton (Jay Self and Helena Lee) would love to hear from anyone with any form of albinism who is over the age of 60. If you or anyone you know fits the bill, please complete the form.

Would you like to participate in a study about support and information available to people with nystagmus and their families? It’s run by University Hospital Southampton but you can complete the survey at home.


Children up to the age of 10 with or without Down’s Syndrome can join Asma Zahidi’s study into characteristics and impact of nystagmus in children at the University of Cardiff.


Do you have recently diagnosed Acquired Nystagmus. Do you suffer from oscillopsia some or all of the time? Would you like to take part in a trial involving virtual reality glasses to see if they can alleviate the worst of your symptoms? If so, please contact us and we will put you in touch with the Sheffield team.
