About American Nystagmus Network, Inc.
The mission of the American Nystagmus Network (ANN) is to improve the quality of life for all persons and families affected by nystagmus through an organized support network, education, research, and public awareness. Nystagmus is characterized by involuntary, oscillating eye movement, which often affects visual acuity. It is not a specific medical condition, but rather a symptom of an underlying sensory or neuromuscular disorder. ANN serves an international audience, with listserve members in India, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and New Zealand. It grew out of a nystagmus Internet email list introduced in 1997.
