Abstract

Our objective was to assess the capability of computerized dynamic posturography (CDP) to evaluate dizziness in blind patients who lack corneoretinal potential. We performed a retrospective analysis of 2 young blind subjects with intraorbital scarring who complained of dizziness and underwent CDP. Tests were carried out at our center for balance disorders using the NeuroCom's EquiTest System version 4.0. CDP demonstrated vestibular dysfunction and revealed it to be severe. We conclude that CDP can serve as a potentially reliable tool for assessing dizziness in blind patients who have no corneoretinal potential.
