I have tried researching for answers but i come up short, the closest thing I found was this website and a... (0 replies)

... I signed onto Health Boards simply to say that I too can "wiggle" my eyes, and have been able to since I was a young girl. My mother can also do it, and I have always wondered if it is a hereditary thing.

Now I'm lucky if I can do it for... (20 replies)

If you live in the U.S. depending on your health insurance, if any, you may need a referral from an ophthalmologist to see such a specialist. I... (5 replies)
