How Does Vestibular Testing Work?

Vestibular testing is designed to determine if an issue with your inner ear is the root cause of your dizziness. Some of the most common vestibular evaluation tests include:

Hearing Testing

During a vestibular hearing test, you will wear headphones or inserts in a sound-treated room and listen for beeping sounds. Each time you hear a beep, you will let your audiologist know. Your hearing and vestibular function are closely related, so one can help tell details about the other.

Visual Testing

In a visual test, you will follow a moving light with your eyes while your audiologist analyzes your eye movements. This text can help identify problems with your vision and vestibular function.

Positional Testing

This type of testing is similar to visual testing. The difference if you will be moving other parts of your body than just your eyes while your audiologist analyzes your eye movements.

Rotary Chair Testing

A rotational computerized chair is positioned in the middle of a small, darkened room. During this test, you’ll be strapped into place while wearing infrared goggles that record your eye movements as the chair moves.

Caloric Testing

During this test, your eye movements will be analyzed as warm and cool water or air is placed into each of your ear canals to stimulate your vestibular system.

“My son Caleb attended Autumn Oaks for about two years because he had a speech delay. During his time there his speech and pronunciation improved greatly. Mrs. Eshita (our speech pathologist) is so encouraging, patient and supportive. The entire staff is friendly and great to work with. We cannot thank Autumn Oaks enough for helping our son!!”
