1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

If they are well taken care of, never slept in, and care used in taking them out and putting them in then yes, most people with nystagmus can wear contact lenses.
Assuming of course the eye movements are not so large that they interfere with the positioning of the lens on the cornea.
