Superior oblique myokymia is a benign entity that causes intermittent, brief, recurring episodes of monocular shimmering oscillopsia. These episodes may be accompanied by torsional diplopia (unusual) or more likely by the awareness of an ocular tremor of the involved eye. Observation with adequate magnification is necessary to establish the diagnosis.
