My opinion is solely informative and does not constitute a formal medical opinion or recommendation. For a formal medical opinion and/or recommendation you must see an eye doctor.
Amongst this list, I'm sorry that many of these listings do not specify what their sub-specialty is. Any ophthalmologist should be able to evaluate him, though, to determine the health of his eyes and whether he needs glasses or not. However, whether any of these are specifically pediatric / strabismus surgeons, I do not know.
That being said, nystagmus, especially that caused by albinism usually is not amenable to surgery; in other words, surgery won't cure this nystagmus. He has it because the vision is likely poor and these eye movements are in response to this poor vision. This may improve over time if / as the vision improves, but surgery to straighten the eyes doesn't usually resolve the nystagmus.
Does that make sense?
