Hello Ms. Suryanty! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Nystagmus is a condition where the eyeball moves quickly without being able to be controlled. Nystagmus can occur from left to right or right to left (horizontal), from top to bottom or from bottom to top (vertical), or spinning (rotatoar). The movement of the eyeball varies between slow and fast and usually occurs in both eyes. Sometimes, nystagmus occurs when someone looks to a certain side, so people with nystagmus tend to look to one side or avoid looking at a certain side. Nystagmus can occur from birth or only appear after it is large. Nystagmus can occur due to heredity, disorders of the eye, diseases of the brain, disorders of the ear, or the use of certain drugs. The use of minus-lensed glasses cannot overcome nystagmus. Minimens lens can only be used for refractive disorders in the form of myopia or nearsightedness.
If your child has nystagmus, it should be checked first what are the possible causes of the nystagmus. You should bring your child to see an ophthalmologist. The doctor will check the condition of your child's eyes, whether it is true experiencing nystagmus or not. The doctor will also check if there are refractive problems that need to be corrected with glasses. The doctor will explain to you the reason for myopic children and how to overcome them. You need to remember, myopic cannot always be overcome with glasses. If there is a nervous breakdown or balance disorder due to the inner ear, the eye doctor may refer your child to the relevant specialist for further examination and treatment. For a while, your child should avoid reading writing that is too small. Use good lighting. When in class, he should sit in front, near the blackboard and the teacher.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
