Causes Baby’s Eyeballs To Move Uncontrollably?
I want to ask lately, my baby’s eyeballs often move uncontrollably. My baby was only 9 months old and at the time of birth until yesterday 8 months did not seem strange but my baby often rubbed his eyes, whether it’s in a state of play or want to sleep, it was not every time but several times when he woke up from sleep, when it was difficult to sleep, and when he was shocked at his sleep his eyes moved uncontrollably. Though my husband and I do not have a history of such offspring. Is that a sign of squinting or is it a certain disorder and how can you overcome it?
Hello Iis, thanks for the question.
The eyeball that moves uncontrollably is called nystagmus. Nystagmus is a response or reflex of the nervous system of the eye when the eye tries to find an appropriate focal point. This disorder can be congenital or acquired. Congenital nystagmus can generally heal itself, although in some cases it can persist. Nystagmus can be caused by various conditions, for example:
disorders of the eye nerve or central nerve in the brain that regulates the work of the eye trauma head mass on the brain cataracts squinting ear disorders in the effect of certain drugs You should consult an eye doctor in order to obtain further action and explanation. If needed, your doctor may refer you to a neurologist or an otolaryngologist. Treatment or further action depends on the results of the initial examination. Hopefully you get the benefits of this answer. Regards.
