This page is an attempt to think about visual vertigo using a structured way. It may not be very useful for patients, and we suggest that instead they look at the overview page about visual vertigo.

As is the case for most physiological systems, there are three general classes of disturbance so we have 3 types of visual vertigo --  sensory, central, and motor. If you want to jump to the "chase", most people end up with with symptoms attributed to one of four entities: Visual dependence (i.e. a vestibular issue), an ocular disturbance (for example, post cataract surgery), migraine associated vertigo, or a psychogenic cause (anxiety or PPPD).

See this page for references about visual vertigo.
