I have uncontrolled rapid eye movement where my eyes flutter up and down at least 10 times a day or more this happened all my life, what causes this?

Flutter: Fluttering eye movements may be an oscillopsia or blepharospasm. Oscillopsia is a normal finding, often inherited-- as long as you don't find distortion in your vision, it is benign-- blepharospasm is usually benign as well and can be caused by dry eye, stress, caffeine, allergy, or fatigue.

I have rapid eye movement disorder. What should I do?

I have rapid eye movement disorder. What should I do?

REM disorder: If you do possess true rem disorder of sleep, this should be evaluated by a sleep specialist and neurologist. This could be the earliest sign of a disorder of the basal ganglia, and possibly heralding eventual parkinson's or even lewy body accumulation. This sleep disorder can cause violent night-time activity and needs to be addressed.

Can nucynta (tapentadol) 100mgs cause hallucinations and uncontrollable rapid eye movement with eye pain w it?

Can nucynta (tapentadol) 100mgs cause hallucinations and uncontrollable rapid eye movement with eye pain w it?

Yes and no: There have been post- marketing case reports of Nucynta (tapentadol) causing hallucinations. I did not see any reference to rapid eye movements or eye pain associated with it. It would be a good idea to see an optometrist to see if you have glaucoma which many central nervous system drugs can trigger. A neurology or ophthalmologist should evaluate you for causes of nystagmus, the rapid eye movements

Had EEG done. I was WIDE AWAKE (taken ADD medince that morning)results stated theta waves, rapid eye movement, and facial twitches. Normal results?

90% normal: Spikes and sharp waves are abnormal. Most other waves are pretty normal. The facial "twitch" could potentially be interpreted as abnormal based on the clinical scenario.

What is a laser eye surgery for rapid eye movement and nearsightedness?

What is a laser eye surgery for rapid eye movement and nearsightedness?

Laser eye surgery: It is possible with some laser platforms to do corneal refractive laser surgery on a patient with nystagmus (if that is what you mean by rapid eye movement), in order to correct myopia. Surface ablation / prk would likely be the best choice, if the rest of the evaluation indicates the procedure would be safe for that patient.

My son has rapid horizontal eye movement for 5-10 minutes after wakening from naps. It repeats a pattern. Is this serious?

Nystagmus: Is always a cause for concern. Some causes are serious, and others are not. Only a physician who has the benefit of a full physical exam and testing results can attest to how serious this is in your son.

Visual defect: If the sensation of a defect ("circle") in your visual field persists for more than 20 minutes you should see an ophthalmologist. Spots ("floaters") are common, and usually benign, unless numerous and persistent. Large defects than this that are persistent could be a sign of retinal tear or vitreous degeneration. Get it checked.
