An involuntary rhythmic shaking or wobbling of the eye is known as nystagmus.
It could be eye related or inner ear related nystagmus.
It always affects the quality of vision.
When appears later in life, during adulthood, it must be evaluated by neurologist, since it can indicate neurologic disorders like multiple sclerosis, or more serious ones like brain tumor or head injury.
It can develop as a side effecet of certain medications, too.
