Description of Case: A PowerPoint presentation on what is extraocular motility, relevant diseases, and how to measure it.
Summary of the Case:
- Assessing extraocular motility is an important part of the eye examination.
- This can be done with the “H” test in addition to testing straight up and down.
- Motility abnormalities can lead to symptoms such as diplopia, problems with depth perception, nausea, vomiting, eye pain, headache, asthenopia, photophobia, and blurry vision.
- Motility abnormalities can be a sign of EOM entrapment, vascular disease, or neurological disease, which requires careful ophthalmic evaluation, and possibly urgent systemic workup.
