Eye movement problems

In some people with MS, the nerve pathways that control the movement of their eyes can be affected. As a result their eyes may not move smoothly, or the two eyes may be out of alignment.

The two most common eye movement problems in MS are double vision (diplopia) and involuntary eye movements (nystagmus).

Types of eye movement problems

  • Double vision (Diplopia)
  • Involuntary eye movements (nystagmus)
