When little River Rose was born, her parents, like most new parents, knew she was absolutely perfect. But after two months of getting to know their baby girl, River’s parents noticed that her eyes turned outward a bit more than other babies. A few months later, mom and dad noticed a shake in River’s eye that alarmed them enough to visit a local doctor of optometry.
Her caring optometrist noticed that River had a rotary nystagmus, or a rapid rhythmic eye movement. After some necessary tests to rule out a tumor or other complications, River was cleared and sent home with some brand new glasses to help strengthen her eyes and provide her with better vision.
