The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Convergence insufficiency
- Convergence palsy
- OCULAR MOTILITY DISORDERS-. disorders that feature impairment of eye movements as a primary manifestation of disease. these conditions may be divided into infranuclear nuclear and supranuclear disorders. diseases of the eye muscles or oculomotor cranial nerves iii iv and vi are considered infranuclear. nuclear disorders are caused by disease of the oculomotor trochlear or abducens nuclei in the brain stem. supranuclear disorders are produced by dysfunction of higher order sensory and motor systems that control eye movements including neural networks in the cerebral cortex; basal ganglia; cerebellum; and brain stem. ocular torticollis refers to a head tilt that is caused by an ocular misalignment. opsoclonus refers to rapid conjugate oscillations of the eyes in multiple directions which may occur as a parainfectious or paraneoplastic condition e.g. opsoclonus myoclonus syndrome. adams et al. principles of neurology 6th ed p240

Information for Patients
Eye Movement Disorders
When you look at an object, you're using several muscles to move both eyes to focus on it. If you have a problem with the muscles, the eyes don't work properly.
There are many kinds of eye movement disorders. Two common ones are
- Strabismus - a disorder in which the two eyes don't line up in the same direction. This results in "crossed eyes" or "walleye."
- Nystagmus - fast, uncontrollable movements of the eyes, sometimes called "dancing eyes"
Some eye movement disorders are present at birth. Others develop over time and may be associated with other problems, such as injuries. Treatments include glasses, patches, eye muscle exercises, and surgery. There is no cure for some kinds of eye movement disorders, such as most kinds of nystagmus.
