Oscillation is the feeling that the surroundings are constantly moving when in fact it is stationary.
Oscillation is often a symptom of conditions that affect eye movement or the ability of the eye to stabilize images, especially during movement.
Read on to learn more about oscillation, including its common causes and symptoms and how to treat it.
Oscillation often occurs as a result of conditions that affect eye movement or change the way parts of the eye, inner ear and brain stabilize images and maintain balance.
It is often associated with other types of eyeball fibrillation, a condition that causes abnormal or involuntary eye movements.
Conditions that affect areas of the brain – particularly the cerebellum or parts of the eye motor system – are another common cause of oscillation.
The eye motor system is a series of biological processes that keep images stable when the head or eyes move. Damage to the eye motor system tends to impair vision and make it seem like the world is always moving, especially when a person is changing the position of the head or moving.
Some of the most common conditions that experts are involved in range include:
- Neurological conditions, such as seizures, multiple sclerosis and oblique superior myokymia
- brain or head injury, especially bilateral cerebellar injury
- conditions, such as stroke, affecting …
