A gradual decline in visual acuity is noted as visual images move across the retina at increasing speeds. No significant decrease is noted when images move across the retina at speeds of two to three degrees per second, but at four to five degrees per second and above, gaze stability and visual acuity are compromised (Demer, Honrubia, & Baloh, 1994; Leigh & Zee, 1991). Gaze stability may be defined as the ability to maintain foveal vision during head movements. When retinal slip occurs and visual acuity is compromised, a sensory conflict between perceived visual, vestibular, and somatosensory information can occur.
