Vestibular Testing

We use Videonystagmograhy (VNG) testing to evaluate the inner ear by measuring eye movements.  This procedure will help us to determine if inner ear may be causing your balance symptoms. This test shows us whether both inner ears of balance are equally strong. We will ask you to follow moving lights with your eyes. We will have you lay down on a table the same way you would in bed. Lastly, we will gently flow warm or cool water/air in your ears and record your eye movements. This set of tests lasts approximately 1 hour.
