Video Frenzel Goggles
The AVORA Health Center for Balance & Dizziness performs Videonystagmography testing (VNG) which uses Video Frenzel Goggles to record eye movements in both room light (with fixation) and in total darkness (without fixation). Abnormal eye movements, which are perceived by the patient as spinning (vertigo) or falling, can be caused by the brain, the inner ear or connections between the two. Some disorders do not require the use of video goggles to diagnose, if you have a skilled and knowledgeable clinician evaluating you. However, evaluating eye movements under Frenzel Video Goggles often enables a more accurate diagnosis to be reached. This is a highly specialized field that takes serious education and experience to become proficient. In addition, we perform video Head Impulse Testing (vHIT) rather than caloric testing because it is general more comfortable for patients and tests all 6 canals.
