This piece was made for Walk For Wiggly Eyes. Mike from Brisbane, Australia will be walking the full length of New Zealand (from the South to the North) to raise money to cure nystagmus. He is raising money for three charities, Gift of Sight, Nystagmus Network and Blind & Low Vision NZ Foundation. I will be donating 80% of the money from the sale of this product. I will be splitting the donations between the three charities but if you have a preference please let me know. I would like to acknowledge everyone who purchases this product by adding your name to the donation, it will be listed on the charity website. Please let me know if you wish to remain anonymous.
What is Nystagmus?
NYSTAGMUS IS A COMPLEX VISUAL IMPAIRMENT, CHARACTERISED BY INVOLUNTARY EYE MOVEMENTS, AFFECTING FOCUS AND DEPTH PERCEPTION. THE EYES APPEAR TO WOBBLE OR FLICKER FROM SIDE TO SIDE OR UP AND DOWN. NYSTAGMUS IS CAUSED BY ABNORMAL FUNCTIONING OF THE PART OF THE BRAIN WHICH REGULATES EYE MOVEMENT AND POSITIONING.
