Eye Movement in Children

Many children enter the world with less than 100%  of their expected visual capacity, a deficiency that is not always obvious to parents or medical professionals. One sign of possible  problems, however, is eye movement. Eye movements tell a lot about vision, even if a child is pre-verbal. How well a child follows faces or large objects is a clue to his or her visual abilities. Another indication of a possible disorder is unusual jiggling of a child's eye or eyes, called nystagmus. These eye movements can be constant or intermittent. They can be horizontal, vertical, oblique, torsional (circular) or combinations of the above. Thus, the study of eye movement can provide important information regarding sight.
