We describe two patients with a lifelong history of oscillopsia only when following objecta moving towd their left side. Neurologic examination was normal except for eye movements. The patients showed nystagmus during any tasks that required visual following toward the left (ie, smooth pursuit, optokinetic nystagmus, and vestibulo-ocular-reflex-suppres-sion), but had no nystagmus during fixation of stationary targets or visual following tasks to the right. Eye-movement recordings showed waveforms during pursuit to the left that were typical of congenital nystagmus.
