  • Assessment of movements and alignment of eyes
  • Impaired eye movements and eye misalignment can be caused by lesions of extraocular muscles, neuromuscular junction, ocular motor cranial nerves, brain stem
  • Diagnosis depends on assessing pattern of impaired eye movements and misalignment, and noting contributory manifestations such as pupil or lid abnormalities
  • Eye oscillations can be caused by impaired vision, medications, recreational drugs, and brain stem disorders
