A 47-year-old female asked:

I made a video of my eyes. for the most part they stay straight but they did have a little movement after i stared awhile. it was a small movement . it wasnt a jerk or rapid movement. is this nystagmus? when i focus on something they dont move?

What you described does not suggest nystagmus. If your vision is as it has been, you need not be concerned. Wish you good health!
