nystagmus

    My son will be 3 in April. He was diagnosed with congenital nystagmus
    at 6 months. He uses his vision extremely well, however, he has other
    slight developmental delays like sensory integration. Are the two
    related? Also, I've been hearing lately that high doses of magnesium
    and thiamin can cure nystagmus. Does anyone know anything about that?

    Usually, early age nystagmus is associated with other vision disorders
    so
    hopefully your son will not be affected. It's tough to say if his other

    developmental delays has any direct relationship with the nystagmus
    but I guess it's a possiblilty that it's a cause.

    There really isn't any cure for congenital nystagmus- there is
    treatment
    to try to minimalize it (finding the "null point" for instance). I
    haven't
    heard of any study regard mega-dosing magnesium or thiamin and
    I'd be very concerned about trying it on a toddler.

    If you really want to help your son with the only treatment that works,
    that is rest treatment, please read the book Stories from the Clinic by
    E.C. Lierman.

    You may find some digitalized untrustful copies on Internet.

    I have reprinted it on paper.

    Peruse this newgroup and you'll quickly learn that Rishi is to be
    aggressively and actively ignored.

    Best of luck with your son's eye issues....

    Yes, you can ignore me very easily, but the truth will hunt you till
    your very end.

    Do you think that by following the wrong treatments his son will get
    any benefit?

    etc. for support and information.
