In 2021 the Nystagmus Network supported 591 people to come to terms with nystagmus, to find the support and information they needed. We’re even busier in 2022, as more and more people find their way to us and join the virtual nystagmus community. It’s so rewarding when the people we support show us their appreciation.
Here are just some of the lovely things that people are saying about us:

On our Acquired Nystagmus away weekend: “We had a lovely time last weekend and I cannot thank you enough for all the work you put in to make this event so successful.” … “It was so lovely to meet you all in Bath and, whilst tiring for us sufferers, was a great opportunity to chat on a more personal level. We had a great connection and got on so well. I felt like we could see (and appreciate) our individual characters, despite the very troublesome nystagmus. Thank you so much for arranging this.”
