Dizziness is frequently caused by inner ear disorders. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is when loose crystals in the inner ear cause positional dizziness lasting seconds to minutes. An office procedure called an Epely Maneuver repositions these crystals, curing most patients. Learn more about BPPV at Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Other balance disorders treated in our office include vestibular neuronitis, labrynthitis, and Meniere's disease. Balance testing (electronystagmogram ENG ) is available in the office for difficult- to- diagnose patients.
Dr. Rosner has performed groundbreaking research describing the vertical heterophoria syndrome. Patients with this syndrome have dizziness and face pain stemming from visual stimulation such as reading, walking in a mall or riding in a car. Detailed optometric examination of patients with these complaints may show an eye muscle imbalance. Patients can then be fitted with custom fit prescription lenses with small amounts of prism to provide prompt and lasting relief. For more information see Vertical Heterophoria in Adults (PDF Format) and Vertical Heterophoria in Children (PDF Format). Optometrists treating this disorder can be found at visionspecialistsofbirmingham.com.
