A condition in which stationary objects appear to jerk back and forth or wiggle, because of involuntary eye movements. Oscillopsia can be the result of labyrinthine, brainstem or cerebellar disease; occasionally it can also involve just one eye and be the result of spontaneous contractions of motor units in an eye muscle.
perception of an oscillating image or environmental movement
Oscillating vision. Swinging vision. In oscillopsia, objects seem to swing, move back and forth, jerk, or wiggle. A classical language hybrid derived from the Latin "oscillo", meaning to swing, and the Greek "opsis" meaning vision.
Continuous, involuntary, and chaotic eye movements that result in a visual disturbance in which objects appear to be jumping or bouncing.
A vision disorder caused by the loss of vestibular function resulting in the illusion that objects are bobbing up and down, to and fro, or back and forth.
the perception that the environment is moving back and forth.
Oscillopsia is a visual disturbance in which objects in the visual field appear to oscillate. The severity of the effect may range from a mild blurring to rapid and periodic jumping. Oscillopsia may be caused by loss of the vestibulo-ocular reflex, involuntary eye movements such as nystagmus, or impaired coordination in the visual cortex (especially due to toxins).
