Do you think any eye doctor can help for nystagmus ? In the list, is there a Doctor with nystagmus surgery experience?
Expert:  Dr. Dan B. replied 3 years ago.

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?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes, I understand. Do you know a specialist of nystagmus in your country or area to whom you could recommend me ?
Expert:  Dr. Dan B. replied 3 years ago.

There are dozens and dozens in the U.S. What particular city and/or state would you be interested in knowing the location of specialists?
