To the Editor.
—The editorial "Muscles as Sense Organs"1 and the article it discussed by Campos and colleagues,2 both of which appeared in the August issue of the Archives, were most interesting. I have found that resection of extraocular muscle tendons can improve or eliminate nystagmus in some patients. I predicted this as a result of decreasing the signal in the feedback circuit. Unfortunately, such an approach only works in about half of the cases.3
