    This is interesting. My vision has gone down hill the last couple years and my vertigo has gotten much worse. I'm scheduled for cataract surgery in a couple weeks and am being sent to PT for the vertigo. I had never heard of PT for vertigo before last week and it will be interesting to see if the vision issue is related.

    At this point the vertigo is so bad I am having a difficult time functioning and am concerned that I ll be retiring a couple years sooner than expected. Obviously I haven't been ridding for the past couple months.

    To some extent the vertigo feeling is similar to the fear of heights sensation. When I was a kid I had no problem with heights. My balance has always been excellent until recently.

    A friend of mine's wife was having vision vertigo problems as well. My friend had been taking his wife to and from work for several months. She started pt a few months ago. He no longer has to drive her. She says she still has some issues but not nearly as troublesome as before. So the pt has helped her thus far. Last I heard a couple of weeks ago she is still going to pt regularly.
