Eye problems are very common and not rare at all, especially in the initial and early phases of MS. Usually eye problems subside and only occasionally will they flicker as time goes on.

Yes,

I have a form of nystagmus called INO which is very common in MS especially early stages.This nystagmus was detected on an evoked potential done at my ent's office.

Yes I have had nystagmus. It lead to my DX. It took about 4 weeks to resolve itself. I didn't have accompanying iritis.

Re: iritis and nystagmus does anyone have these rare eye problems

i don't know that i've had irititis but i've defintialy had nystagmus. i take meclazine for nystagmus (dizziness and such) and it helps. a neuro doc i've had once told me that eye symptoms for ms are not a bad prognosis. i don't know. i've been living with ms for 10 years. the most pronouned symptoms i've have to say are optical. don't know if this helps...
