Correlation between visual dependency and vestibular dysfunction in people with multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • This study identified greater dynamic subjective visual vertical (SVV) errors in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), which suggest there is visual dependence in this population compared with healthy controls.

Why this matters

    The relationship between visual dependency in people with MS and disease progression is unknown and correlations from this study indicate SVV abnormalities may have application as a clinical biomarker.
