A.N.N.'s Mission

To improve the quality of life for all persons and families affected by nystagmus, through organized community support, education and public awareness.

What is Nystagmus?   Nystagmus is an involuntary movement of the eyes which often seriously reduces vision. Few people with Nystagmus can drive and most encounter some difficulties in everyday life, education and employment.

Who gets Nystagmus?   Anyone can get Nystagmus. Every year thousands of children are born to parents with no family history of Nystagmus as well as to families where the condition already exists. Nystagmus which occurs in infancy has many names including Congenital Nystagmus, Infantile Nystagmus and Early Onset Nystagmus. Each year, thousands of adults develop (acquire) Nystagmus due to accidents or illnesses such as stroke or multiple sclerosis. This is generally known as Acquired Nystagmus.
