On Thursday, September 8, 2011 at 6 p.m. Eastern join ophthalmologist Richard Hertle on www.ORlive.com [1] as he discusses a procedure to correct a rare eye condition called infantile nystagmus, which causes rapid, uncontrollable eye movements that often blur vision.

While there’s no cure for infantile nystagmus, a surgical procedure designed to slow the “dancing” eye has shown promising results. On average, patients have experienced a 20 percent improvement in their central vision and about a 50 percent improvement in their peripheral vision. Until this procedure was developed in 1999, medical treatments for reducing abnormal eye movement had limited success.
