Information about Siamese eye problems?

Playful Nancy June
Does anyone have knowledge about Siamese eye problems? Nancy June came into our life last August. She is 1/4 Siamese, but looks 100%. She is wonderful, sweet, and kind. A true beauty. She is 1 year and 1 month old.
I noticed when she came here, she had an odd way of looking at people and things. Her head is always moving, as are her eyes. They are not crossed. I can tell she has to adjust her sighting for both near and far distances.
I have read that there are several eye problems inherent to Siamese. I came across a site that explained the maladies.
I think she has Nystagmus (pendular). It is the head bobbing, moving eyes description that seems to fit her the best.
My question: Is this a lifelong problem or does she grow out of it? Regardless, we love her so, and she will always be with us. I only hope for her sake, comfort and health that this is a passing situation.
