Hello

There is no picture attached here.

Nystagmus can not be diagnosed from a picture.

It has to have a physical exam with testing, to confirm it.

Simply seeing the eyes pointed laterally could be any number of conditions.

Glad to look at a picture if you attach it, but can't diagnose nystagmus.

If nystagmus is suspected, examination is required.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
