Alan Alda mentioned he has a grand-daughter for whom letters seem to slip off the page. A similar experience is had by people with an affliction like that when they look at a star... it seems to drift off to one side, even though the person says he/she is intently focused on the star. This is probably eye vibration (Nystagmus) and can be witnessed by anyone observing the person's eye as a finger is moved back and forth and the afflicted one attempts to follow it. Such a person needs get a doctor's presciption (note) indicating the existence of it, because the police use it as a test for drunkenness and drug intake. Carry the note!
