The first time I took Trigg, my blue lynx mitted Ragdoll cat, to the acupuncturist (can’t remember how old he was, but it’s been a few years), she asked me, “Did you notice the Nystagmus in his eyes?” I had never even heard the word and my regular vet had never said anything. Nystagmus is when the eyes quiver back and forth or oscillation of the eyeballs. She said it wasn’t a big deal and that it is quite common in Siamese cats.
I have always thought Trigg has somewhat of an eyesight problem – for example, I can come home and be wearing a sweatshirt with the hood up and he freaks out, not recognizing me until I vocally say, “It’s OK, Chiggy, it’s me.” and then he settles down and relaxes.
Anyway, I wanted to share his Nystagmus with you guys – hopefully, you’ll be able to see it.
Does anyone have experience with Nystagmus?
