Patients Focal dystonia
Topic of the discussion

Wondering if anyone else in the group with cervical dystonia has had trouble with a tremor in their vision? This is not an eye or vestibular system problem. It’s as though the visual system cannot cope with the head tremor.

@Hidden username Yes. Sometimes my the tremors can affect my vision more because it, at times, causes me to get dizzy / light headed which causes me to lose focus.

Thanks for replying. Mine isn't a focus issue, although it does make me dizzy. Instead it is as though my visual field is stuck for a while on permanent "horizontal" movement like on old televisions. So far I haven't had any neurologist (or neuro-ophthalmologist) say that they have seen it before. It is like what you expect someone with nystagmus to see although my eyes are not moving back and forth (and some people with nystagmus do not have their view moving.)

I have seen a eye doctor who agrees that my head tremors or facial spasms effect my eyes. My eye sight is perfect but my pupils will not stop from going in and out of focus. Need glasses to help but still get bad headaches.
