Answer

Answer

For the oculomotor portion of the evaluation, patients must have adequate vision to follow targets. Although the oculomotor portion cannot be completed without adequate vision, the rest of the ENG and VNG test battery can be conducted in patients with limited or absent vision.

It is also important to note that oculomotor stimulation with lights may cause seizures.
