I think I'm going to make a group about it on facebook... maybe the combined interest will bring about some answers.
During my education on the human body in school, I... (20 replies)
... Another voluntary eye-wiggler here! I didn't know I had company until some years back when I saw actor Pruitt Taylor Vince do it on TV (the X-files). On the web it is said that he has nystagmus, but it sure didn't look involuntary to me.

... it, I just sort of did it. After a few months of trying, my sister was also able to learn this trick so I'm thinking its a genetic thing. I dated the son of an eye surgeon awhile back and the doctor told me the medical name for the condition, but I've forgotten. Maybe I'll have to ask him again. ... (20 replies)
... WOW!! My wife suggested that I go online to try to find someone else that can do what I can do. You, my friend, are not alone. I can shake my eyes whenever I feel like it.

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

... I have been having symptoms similar to yours. Especially the shimmying/left right swaying of objects. It is indeed the most depressing of all symptoms. Done many tests/scans without solutions yet. Doctors say could be viral in nature (probably why they don't prescribe antibiotics).
