Hand-eye Co-ordination

I was born with Nystagmus and a squint, because of these problems (they're both eye conditions, btw) I have some problems with my hand-eye co-ordination. Is there anything I or the opticians/eye specialists can do to improve this please?
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Practice things you want to improve on - learned responses get you far in this life.

    The problem with that though is that it's nearly everything that I have to do pretty much every day.

    Have you seen a consultant about this? I have a squint (strabismus) and it causes double vision when looking behind. I've been told that if I was referred to a consultant opthalmologist, I'd be given exercises to do... I'm wondering if there are some other types of exercises to improve hand/eye coordination... maybe it's worth talking to your GP?

    Like Jamez said, you can get a lot of improvement through practise, but generally people get better improvement from specific exercises rather than from repeating the same day to day task again and again.

    It would be worth asking the next person you see about your eyes if there's anything you can do to try and help, for example exercises. If you ask a fairly specific question then they will often come up with suggestions they wouldn't have mentioned otherwise.

    I googled exercises for hand eye co ordination, and on the first page there was some utter rubbish, but some that had suggestions of exercises to try, might be worth having a go.

    No I haven't. I forgot to mention it both times when I went to the eye infirmary in June/July.

    I need to go the doctors anyway, so I'll mention it to them adn see what they say.
