Nystagmus has many etiologies, but not caused by eye strain. It can be induced by various tests like spinning around on a chair and stopping.

Nystagmus is an "internal" condition that is built in to the wiring of your eyes and brain. "external" issues such as fatigue or looking in certain directions can cause nystagmus to appear worse or more evident, but they cannot cause nystagmus to develop.
