Products to promote public awareness of Infantile Nystagmus, an involuntary movement of the eyes usually diagnosed by 6 months of age. Infantile Nystagmus affects approximately 1 in 3000 individuals. The severity and pattern of involuntary eye movement often varies from person to person, and the direct cause of onset is not always identifiable. Infantile Nystagmus sometimes coexists with conditions such as strabismus or albinism. There is no "cure." Treatments including surgery, lenses, and medication are available and may lessen the appearance of involuntary eye movements. Vision Therapy may also be an option to improve reading comprehension issues and lessen end-of-the-day headaches caused by stress to the visual system.
Each item is marked up a flat rate of $5 over the base price charged by Cafepress. Five dollars from EACH item purchased goes directly to the treasurer of the American Nystagmus Network. When the amount raised reaches $25 (meaning 5 items were purchased), Cafepress cuts a check to ANN within 45 days. This allows time for Cafepress to offer a 30-day money back guarantee/returns/exchanges.
The American Nystagmus Network provides technology grants, several scholarships to college students with nystagmus each year, and hosts a biennial conference for people with nystagmus and their families who are interested in learning more about the condition and meeting others affected by nystagmus.
