Nystagmus can be challenging to diagnose in children and often the level of sight loss a newly diagnosed child will experience is unclear, leading to significant anxiety for parents who fear their child will develop severe visual impairment.
Thanks to the work of Dr Melvyn Thomas and the research team at the University of Leicester there is now a validated method of predicting prognosis in children and infants with infantile nystagmus.
This development answers the question most parents of newly diagnosed babies have: How well will my child be able to see?
