• Can strabismus affect my EEG test?


    Question:

    Can strabismus alter the results of an EEG test (test that helps find problems with the brain). Every time I have one, it doesn’t show any results. Doctors say it is because of muscle tension. I feel my eyes moving while trying to be as still as possible during EEG test, and I cannot make them still.


    Answer:

    I am not aware of a strabismus having an untoward effect on an EEG test results. If your eyes do not stay still, that could also be nystagmus, but I don't think it would alter results here either.
