Mechanisms underlying acquired nystagmus are better understood than those leading to infantile nystagmus. Accordingly, further progress has been made in the development of effective therapies for acquired nystagmus, mainly through pharmacological interventions. Some of these therapies have been developed under the guidance of findings from experimental animal models. Although mechanisms behind infantile nystagmus are less understood, progress has been made in determining the genetic basis of… CONTINUE READING
