Dizziness stands for vertigo (rotatory and nautic) and dysbalance/unstability. Vertigo originates from the vestibular central nervous system; no eye disease, but nystagmus is often present. Dysbalance/unstability: normal ophthalmological findings exclude ophthalmological pathogenesis. Ophthalmological pathology, especially recently developed may be involved. Uncorrected glasses, eye drops (by systemic absorption), flickering light, and migraine may also cause dysbalance/unstability. Rapid referral to specialist is recommended by fast development of: decreased visual acuity, visual field defects, strabismus, eye movement pathology and nystagmus.
