See, my whole life my eyes dart around in random directions uncontrollably. I can look someone in the eyes for only a few seconds and then my eyes will dart again. As hard as I try I can't stop it. I've been searching to try and figure out what it is but nothing matches up. It's becoming distracting because everyone points it out and it looks as if I have a nervous habit. It's not that I can't look people in the eyes because I'm not confident or anything. It even does it i'm not talking to anyone. Please, if you have any idea.. help me out.

An unintentional jittery movement of the eyes is known as nystagmus.
It could be a benign condition appearing as an isolated problem not associated with other conditions, or it can be eye-related, ear-related or caused by an underlying neurological disorder like multiple sclerosis.
Nystagmus is often exaggerated by looking in a particular direction and may be associated with certain vision loss.
