Nystagmus Awareness Day 20 June – in lockdown

We may all be staying at home, but we can still celebrate national and international Nystagmus Awareness Day. Here are just some of the ways you can get involved.

How amazing are you?

In the run up to Nystagmus Awareness Day 2020, we are once again asking you to share your amazing nystagmus success stories. Not only do these stories help raise awareness of nystagmus, but they also bring hope to so many parents whose children have just been diagnosed. In previous years we’ve heard some truly amazing stories of success or achievement despite, or maybe even because of, having nystagmus. Let’s make 2020 even more amazing!

Our wobbly photography competition

We want to raise as much awareness of nystagmus as possible this year and make sure that everyone has a chance to take part, so we’re running our wobbly photography competition: The View From My Window

We know that lots of people who have nystagmus are also keen photographers. Whether you have nystagmus or not, whether you have the latest camera or just a phone, and wherever you are in the world, you can take part.

Details coming soon

Nystagmus is 

Our fabulous new publication, Nystagmus is …, inspired by the wonderful Roger, will be launched on Nystagmus Awareness Day 2020. The booklet is full of contributions from people who have nystagmus, describing how they feel about it and how it affects their lives. For the first time people can read what it’s really like to have nystagmus by the people who really know.

Nystagmus is … will be available FREE from our online shop on 20 June 2020, but you can pre-order your copy NOW.
