Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Three patients affected by the congenital mono-ophthalmia syndrome were submitted to horizontal eye movements recording. The aim was to study the nystagmus and its characteristics, in order to give information that could explain signs and symptoms of the syndrome. Eye movements recording and analysis displayed a jerk nystagmus with a decreasing-velocity exponential slow phase, characteristic of a latent/manifest-latent nystagmus. The intensity of nystagmus decreased in adduction of the viewing eye, and increased in abduction in accordance with Alexander's law. The fast phase was toward the viewing eye. There was no reversal of the fast phase, nor an instability of gaze in the blind eye.
