Research & Treatment

Image of a team of fundraisersEveryone wants to see better treatments developed for nystagmus. And eventually we'd like to find ways to cure or prevent the condition altogether.

So, one of NN's main goals is to support and encourage research into nystagmus - we wrote that into our constitution when we became a charity in 1989. We do this in different ways, for example by funding some research directly, by finding subjects to take part in research projects and by organising international research events.

You can read more about what we have already done and what we are doing now by following the links below. You can also Join NN and help us make a difference in the future.
