In brief: Are you sure?
Nystagmus is a rapid back and forth movement or the eyes, faster in one direction.
It can be caused by many different things, including poor vision, neurological diseases (sometimes with vertical nystagmus), or congenitally. It can also be caused by some drugs and alcohol. Check your friends blood level. It can also be caused by pouring warm water into one ear. Do you hear me?
