Video-oculography(VOG) uses a special set of goggles with infrared cameras that record various eye movements. We use our VOG to assess and measure:
- Your eye’s ability to stay steady with and without a point of reference
- Maintain focus on a target (gaze stability)
- Follow a moving target (smooth pursuits)
- Move quickly between targets (saccades)
- The reflexive response to a moving target as it passes by(optokinetic reflex)
The visual system is the window to the brain and is closely related to global brain function. Following a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury, we typically see changes in the different types of eye movements.
