The other morning we noticed something odd with DD's eyes. Thebest way I can think to describe it was the Iris was "aggitating" like a washing machine would. The white were in one place, but the iris would partially turn than turn back, like aggitation. At first I was wondering if it couldbe seizure related (my daughter has temporal lobe seizures) but it lasted about 45 min and I know a seizure doesn't last that long. We were just blown off by Carrie's opth on the 30 of Arpil. We took her in for a f/u and he said the problem (she had/has etropia??) either way he couldnt' make her eye do it, so he said it just looks like it does it cause she's got a wide bridge (so not true, many of her therepists have noticed as well as 4 other opth and carrie's neuro)... anyways I'm wondering if the answer to this weird eye occurance is likely neurological or more to do with her eyes themselves... any input would be helpful

wish I knew the asnwer to your questions. Has she been to an pediatric ophthalmologist? Not an optometrist. The only thing I can think of is nystagmus. My daughter has it but its the whole eye.
here is a video if what it looks like YouTube - Pendular Nystagmus
