Vestibular Balance Assessment
Dizziness is a common problem that can affect people of all ages, but it is more common in older adults. We offer a comprehensive battery of tests to evaluate your balance system. We start by taking a detailed history of your balance problems. Then, we use videonystagmography (VNG) to record and analyze your eye movements. This helps us determine how well your balance system is working. VNG is a state-of-the-art, computer-based instrument that can assist us in diagnosing and treating your balance disorder.

The word "dizzy" can have different meanings, such as light-headedness, a floating sensation, or a spinning feeling. As part of our case history, we will define the type of dizziness you are experiencing, as well as its severity, frequency, and when and where it occurs. We will also ask about your lifestyle and medical history to better understand your specific problem.
Electronystagmography (ENG) and videonystagmography (VNG) are tests that can help to diagnose the cause of dizziness. ENG uses electrodes taped around the eyes to detect eye movements, while VNG uses infrared video goggles to record eye movements. These movements are recorded in response to a variety of stimuli, including changes in head position, watching moving objects, and stimulation of the ear canal with warm or cool water or air.
