all participants. The symptoms, signs, and investigations were evaluated by multiple parameters that included a history of vertigo, hearing loss, and tinnitus. Physical examination included clinical otoscopy, a head impulse test, a head-shake test, and a Dix–Hallpike test. Horizontal dynamic visual acuity (DVA) testing of 88 patients was performed by LogMAR chart testing. The reference level at rest was compared to the smallest legible line read during horizontal head shaking. A loss of lines ≥5 was considered significant. Oculomotor testing evaluated ocular

-order confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) to examine the patterns of inter-relationships between several constructs [ 20 ].
