We foster and fund research to improve lives for people with nystagmus.


Currently aiming to commence my next adventure in May 2024, I will be walking Croatia's national scenic long distance hiking trail that connects the easternmost, northernmost, westernmost and southernmost points of Croatia. Covering a distance of over 2,200km (1,400 miles) in under 90 days. I will be keeping you updated along the way as I journey my way across Croatia’s picturesque mountain trails, forest paths, coastal walks, and everything in between.

So what will Nystagmus Network do with the money raised?

Nystagmus Network has supported nystagmus research for many years and continues to do so. Through their collaboration with the leading UK research and clinical teams they are able to lead the way in finding potential treatments for the condition whilst also exploring the causes of nystagmus.

The charity has 3 main areas of research Treatment, Diagnostics, and Genetics, all in an effort to improve QUALITY OF LIFE for those living with nystagmus.

There is a lot of exciting research work being undertaken in the nystagmus field and the charity will continue to be at the forefront to help improve outcomes for those who currently have congenital or acquired nystagmus, as well as future generations of the nystagmus community, and your generous donations can help the funding of this research.
