No. My left eye can move in all directions, I do get pains in both eyes with or without movement. My eyes do not work together. When I look to the right my left eye blurs and sees double and cannot sustain looking to the right, the left eyeball shakes (nystagmus) and cannot sustain the right gaze. This is obvious upon exam by my Neurologist, Ophthalmologist and Neuro-Ophthalmologist. Prisms on my right eye glass lens helped.

I have Multiple Sclerosis(MS) and that is the cause for my Internuclear Ophthalmoplegia. Due to the multitude of symptoms and the severity of them my Neurologist first suspected a brain tumor, this was 6 months after my aunt passed away from her brain tumor. Many years later I was once again suspected of having a brain tumor, although MS was the most likely cause.

Bloombox, if you fear a brain tumor the only way to give yourself some peace is to have a MRI of the brain.
