Vision Therapy for Dizziness and Imbalance

Chicago Dizziness and Hearing offers vision therapy for persons whose dizziness is mainly related to visual stimulation. Chicago is fortunate enough to have several vision therapy providers, all optometrists. However, importantly -- vision therapy at Chicago Dizziness and Hearing has physician involvement with every visit. This provides a coordinated team involved with the treatment as well as offers far more resources than the single specialty practices that have optometry alone.

visual dependence, drivers disorientation, accomodative and convergence insufficiency, vertical heterophoria.

  • Visual dependence is a variant of motion sickness where visual motion causes space/motion discomfort. Visual dependence can be treated with visual habituation, using video and TV's screens with special videos.
  • Driver disorientation syndrome -- driving can be limited because of anxiety provoked by going above certain speeds, getting on or off an expressway, bridges, tunnels, or high contrast driving situations. We treat this at Chicago Dizziness and Hearing by using a variety of techniques to habituate to visual motion.
  • Disturbances to ocular focus (accomodation) alignment and coordination can cause visual vertigo. Exercises and adjustments to eyewear are given as treatment for these problems.
