Soft Contact Lenses to Improve Motor & Sensory Function in Congenital Nystagmus - A Case Study

Nystagmus is a relatively common clinical condition that remains a therapeutic enigma. We present a case in which soft contact lenses were prescribed in a young adult with congenital jerk nystagmus. Immediate and large improvements in both motor and sensory function, as well as cosmesis, were found, with enhancement one week later following constant lens wear. Use of soft contact lenses in these cases represents a simple, effective and inexpensive therapeutic option.
