OD Fee $30

CE Hours = 1

Dizziness can originate from a number of different components. Clinically an Optometrist needs to differentiate the functional origins as from vestibular, visual motion and cervical components. The Dynamic Visual Acuity Test is an accepted form of testing for the VOR gain, but also includes visual motion processing. Visual motion can be a significant component from both horizontal and optic flow. Cervical injuries can also be a factor when assessing these patients. A simple battery of tests can be added to your routine examination and these can direct your treatment.
