As part of the National Institutes of Health Tool- box initiative, we developed easy-to-use computerized tests of vision and inner ear (vestibular system) function. Research has shown that the lack of easy- to-use tests prevents those who would benefit from treatment from being appropriately identified. The tools developed provide reliable testing, are appro- priate for use with individuals 3 to 85 years old, and provide testing that correlates with the gold standard measures of vision and vestibular function. These new tools will assist in identifying those who should be referred for specialized testing or treatment for problems with vision, the inner ear, or balance.
