The eyes are the windows
to the inner ears. If it weren't for our inner ears, we wouldn't be able to see clearly when we move. Inner ear and brainstem/cerebellar disorders "spin" the eyes causing nystagmus. Usually, the reason a person feels spinning is because their eyes are spinning. We use a video eye movement recorder to find and name nystagmus. The type of nystagmus an individual has allows us to help discover a peripheral and/or central vestibular problem that may be causing dizziness.
