In addition to making you feel unwell, balance issues can increase your risk of falling. If you’ve been experiencing dizziness or vertigo, it’s important to find out what’s going on. An audiology doctor at Autumn Oak Speech, Voice, and Hearing near League City, Texas, can perform vestibular testing to determine if your symptoms are related to an issue in your inner ear. Once we confirm your diagnosis, we can suggest a treatment plan to help you feel more centered.

What Does Vestibular Testing Involve?

Vestibular testing consists of a battery of tests, which can vary depending on your specific symptoms. Some commonly performed tests include:

Hearing Testing

While wearing headphones or ear inserts, you will sit comfortably in a sound-treated room and listen for a series of soft beeps. Your audiologist will ask you to let them know whenever you hear a sound. Because the auditory inner ear (cochlea) and vestibular system are closely related and rely on the name nerve, your hearing can provide important clues about your vestibular function.

Visual Testing

Your audiologist will ask you to follow a moving light with your eyes. By analyzing your eye movements, they can identify abnormalities in your vision and vestibular system.

Positional Testing

Instead of moving just your eyes, this test involves moving your head or your entire body. For example, your audiologist may evaluate your eye movements as you turn your head quickly to one side or as you sit up after you have been lying down.

Caloric Testing

Your audiologist will measure your eye movements while warm and cool water or air is gently placed in your ear canal. The water or air will stimulate the vestibular system in each ear separately, which can help your audiologist determine how to best manage your symptoms.

Rotary Chair Testing

You will sit in a rotational computerized chair positioned in the middle of a small, darkened room. The chair will be equipped with a seatbelt and security strap to keep your torso and head in place. Your audiologist will ask you to wear infrared video goggles, which will record your eye movements as the chair moves in different directions.
