2 doctors agree

In brief: NO

Tourettes syndrome is a movement disorder characterized by presence of both motor and vocal tics for more than 1 year. Involuntary eye movements can be a motor tic and depending on the duration maybe transient (less than 1 year)chronic (more than 1 year).
As a result only eye movements is not tourette syndrome.
