PurposeTo clarify the role of ocular dominance and to investigate the importance of visual acuity and restriction of the visual field for the visual stabilization of posture.MethodsThe subjects were 31 healthy volunteers ranging in age from 18 to 27 years. The sway of the center of gravity in the upright position was measured by a stabilometer. The tracings of the center of gravity obtained with the stabilometer while the subjects were standing erect for 1 min under several conditions were… Expand
Ocular dominance and balance performance in healthy adults.
TLDR
Ocular dominance does not seem to affect postural function in the monovision and far viewing condition and balance function was evaluated by computerized dynamic platform posturography. Expand
Static monocular visual cues can decrease the vestibular-evoked balance response at low frequencies.
TLDR
Monocular visual cues, at least for the dominant eye, can depress the vestibular-evoked balance response at low frequencies akin to binocular vision with limited differences exhibited between dominant and non-dominant eye. Expand
Effects of astigmatic axis orientation on postural stabilization with stationary equilibrium
We evaluated 15 healthy participants by assessing their maintenance of postural control while standing on a platform stabilometer for 1 min under the following conditions: eyes open; eyes open with +Expand

TLDR
Although dominant eyes tended to be longer and slightly more myopic than nondominant eyes, it was found that there were no consistent ocular structural differences between dominant and nondominants eyes with the use of OCT. Expand
Influence of gaze distance and downward gazing on postural sway in hemiplegic stroke patients
TLDR
The results showed that the short gaze distance decreased postural sway in both groups, and downward gazing decreased it only in the stroke group. Expand
Electronic Baropodometry in Patients Affected by Ocular Torticollis
TLDR
Electronic baropodometry is a useful instrument for studying secondary postural anomalies in patients affected by OT and significantly increased the length of the sway path, the sway area, and mean velocity in groups A and B. Expand
Effects of continuous visual feedback during sitting balance training in chronic stroke survivors
TLDR
This study suggests that postural training based exclusively on continuous visual feedback can provide limited benefits for stroke survivors, if administered alone, but the positive gains observed during training justify the integration of this technology-based protocol in a well-structured and personalized physiotherapy training, where the combination of the two approaches may lead to functional recovery.

Study on Vision and Static Physical Balance Function Report 1: Healthy Young and Middle-elder People
The purposes of this study were to examine static physical balance function in healthy people and determine standard values. Postural position and target sway were measured under the three conditionsExpand
Sampling duration effects on centre of pressure descriptive measures.
TLDR
The results clearly show that the amplitudes of the descriptive measures are sensitive to sampling duration, and the filter settings, sampling frequency and fitting windows should be standardized since they also affect the magnitude ofThe descriptive measures. Expand
Repeatability of posturographic measures of the mctsib static balance tests a preliminary investigation.
TLDR
The repeatability of the posturographic measures was investigated by repeatedly testing one female and one male subject under controlled conditions, and the most repeatable posturoGraphic measure was found to be the Stability Score. Expand

Visual stabilization of posture. Physiological stimulus characteristics and clinical aspects.
TLDR
The purpose of the present investigation was to obtain quantitative data in man by means of posturography of fore-aft and lateral body sway in relation to different visual stimulus characteristics, which demonstrates clinical relevance in patients with oculomotor disturbances. Expand
Monocular versus binocular vision in postural control.
TLDR
In quiet stance and in subjects with perfect binocular vision and stereopsis, the benefit out of binocular viewing in postural stability is subject-dependent, but at the level of group, monocular vision provides equally good postural Stability as binocular Vision. Expand
The functional role of central and peripheral vision in the control of posture.
TLDR
Investigation of the role of central and peripheral vision in postural control showed that peripheral rather than central vision contributes to maintaining a stable standing posture, with postural sway being influenced more in the direction of stimulus observation, or head/gaze direction, than in thedirection of trunk orientation, which suggests that peripheral vision operates primarily in a viewer-centered frame of reference characterized by the head/ gaze direction.

Relation of ocular dominance, handedness, and the controlling eye in binocular vision.
TLDR
This investigation finds that among the children of normal intelligence who meet difficulty in learning to read is a group with a characteristic pattern and the problem most probably could, and would, be solved by ophthalmologists. Expand
Body sway induced by depth linear vection in reference to central and peripheral visual field.
TLDR
Vection is strongly correlated with body movement, and vection and body sway were more dependent on stimulation of the peripheral visual field. Expand
The effects of visual stimulation of the dominant and non-dominant eyes on the latent period of saccades and the latency of the peak of rapid pre-saccade potentials
TLDR
The aim of the present work was to evaluate lateral differences in saccade LP and the latency of the peak of rapid pre-saccade potentials in response to presentation of visual stimuli to the dominant and non-dominant eyes. Expand
The effect of binocular and monocular distractors on saccades in participants with normal binocular vision
TLDR
In the presence of normal BSV, the effect of distractors is significantly larger for saccade latency and accuracy with binocular distractor presentation than for monocular presentations, with no difference between distrators presented to the dominant or non-dominant eye. Expand
Differential effects of retinal target displacement, changing size and changing disparity in the control of anterior/posterior and lateral body sway
TLDR
This work has investigated the geometrical basis of lateral and fore-aft sway detection by vision and proposed that microoscillations of the eye increase the threshold for detection of retinal target displacements, leading to less efficient lateral sway stabilization than expected and more efficient stabilization of A-P sway.
