  • These goggles are amazing! Absolutely the best on the market. They are lightweight, easy to clean, and durable. The cord is sturdy and reinforced and does not frequently break like the micromedical goggles. These are more than a third less expensive than the competitors and it is a more thoughtfully designed product. If any part requires replacing, the part will be sent to you and you can replace it on your own, so you never have to send back your goggles and be without them for a long period of time. Vestibular first also has great customer service, and even better they are PT owned and operated! Vestibular First is an asset to the profession and is taking a huge step in making vestibular diagnostics more accessible!

  • Having a pair of infrared video goggles was an absolute must on my list of equipment for starting a neuro-focused practice. I had researched different companies but found myself drawn to the Vestibular First’s mission and the fact that a fellow PT had designed them!

    From the minute I reached out and had my virtual meeting with Helena, I knew this was the company for me. I was always well-informed of the process of distribution and shipment (at the time FDA clearance was still pending). Upon receipt, I was able to set-up my program and goggles in less than an hour. The system is so streamlined and easy which was also so important for a less tech savvy person like myself.

    Use of the goggles has been instrumental in my PT diagnosis and treatment of vestibular issues. I feel this has set me apart from other clinics in my area as I am often capturing more subtle presentations of vestibular issues that would be otherwise have been completely missed.

    Thank you so much to Vestibular First for leading the way in optimizing the treatment of neurologic and vestibular patients. To any potential consumer, know that you don’t have to look any further in your search for affordable IR goggles.

  • I highly recommend these goggles! I’ve been using them about a month now, and already seeing things I wouldn’t have seen in room light. Removing fixation makes such a big difference! I feel more confident with vestibular assessment, and the patients appreciate the education I can give them as I play back recordings of their eyes. They are simple to use, even for someone who is not tech savvy. This is an awesome product that I recommend to anyone treating vestibular patients!

  • After purchasing the goggles a few months ago, I’ve been so happy with them! In terms of the design, everything has been taken into consideration. They’re comfortable for patients to wear, and easy for me to work with. Miles better than pricier infrared goggles I have used in the past. As a person who is admittedly not tech savvy, whenever I do have questions, support is on the ball. Quick to respond and always helpful. Kudos to the whole team!

  • I previously had In-View monocular goggles with TV. I love that the Insight goggles plug right into Mac. The portability makes this system usable in all 3 of our practices. Clarity on Mac screen is great. Recording capacity and ease of access to videos is great for teaching. I love recording camera + voice. I love these goggles – they have been a huge asset to my clinical practice!

  • Please may I praise you for such great work. Also the fact that there is the option to view the eyes and have room at the same time – this is a facility we did not have before, and that is a great help in identifying the nystagmus provoked during a specific movement when we want to look back over it again. Well done on all your great work. I would highly recommend your goggles to anyone.

  • The Vestibular First goggles were very comfortable and efficient. I was especially impressed by the clarity of view they provided. I have had a difficult time in the past positioning other types of goggles in a manner that was comfortable for my patients while still providing me with a good view of their eye. Considering the price, portability and comfort, I highly recommend this product!

  • I stumbled on Vestibular First infrared video goggles on social media when looking for equipment suggestions for a new clinic. The Esmonde team worked swiftly, professionally, and thoroughly to provide me with any necessary information to present to my supervisors. The goggles were exactly what I was looking for- practical and easy to use.  They have been available and accessible with any questions to ensure I was able to get the best use during my practice. I highly recommend their product as well as their service.

  • These goggles are user friendly and easy to clean. They give a clear image of both eyes with the ability to use a fixation light as well as record. They are also low cost and portable. Definitely worth purchasing at least one pair for the clinic. They are also a great learning tool for newer clinicians to either see what you are treating or to record their session and ask follow ups later.

  • I have been using the new Insight goggles for almost a month now. I am very happy and satisfied with these goggles. I love how we can adjust the camera angles to get a good view of the eyes. They are worth the price. Thank you so much for making such affordable and user-friendly goggles. The Esmondes have done a fantastic innovation. Technical support is also amazing; (Vestibular First staff) has been guiding me throughout the time I have gotten the goggles.

  • I used my goggles yesterday and immediately noticed the upgrades made. First off, just getting the darned container used to be my biggest problem because I couldn’t snap and unsnap without breaking a finger or two! The new box/container is so easy to zip/unzip ~ it’s wonderful!

    The goggles are perfect! The seal is so much better and it was super easy for my client to just tighten the straps herself. I (and my patient) also loved that I could easily remove the front of the goggle to allow the patient to have some break time in room light.

    I am thrilled with my new goggles. Thanks so much for all of your efforts in getting these out for our fellow vestibular professionals.

  • As my PT practice in Vestibular Rehabilitation started to expand and I gained more knowledge in the extensive assessment involved in evaluating vestibular function, I realized how crucial it was to incorporate the use of infrared video goggles in my practice. The Vestibular First goggles were the best option due to affordability, portability, and ease of use. Since obtaining them, I have been able to take my PT practice to the next level and would highly recommend them!

  • I actually just got a pair of your goggles not too long ago and have really enjoyed them – it has been fun, interesting and comforting being a little more specific with my assessment, especially when trying to tease out central signs. I’m in a fairly rural setting so resources are somewhat limited, and it’s been great having them

  • We have been using the Vestibular First goggles for several months now. Customer service from this company was great. Helena (co-founder) is a PT and vestibular therapist, and we felt very comfortable ordering goggles from her as she knows clinically what is needed for infrared goggles. I have already recommended these to my colleagues and will continue to do so.

  • We have been very pleased with our Insight Infrared goggles. The software allows for playback of the recorded eye movements, which has allowed for a higher level of patient education that I now feel is crucial. The goggles come in a nice case that allow for easy travel. The price is extremely fair for a great pair of goggles, it’s definitely worth it!

  • Our clinics own 3 pairs of the Insight Infrared Video Goggles and have found them to be extremely reliable. The user interface is very intuitive, and we’ve had zero problems concerning performance. Their affordability and functionality make them a perfect choice to aid in vestibular assessment.

  • Vestibular First has been a great cost-effective tool in my practice. This allows me to observe aberrances in eye movements due to peripheral vestibular etiologies that I would not normally be able to assess without expensive equipment. My patients thank you!

  • This is an excellent product for the price point. Greater functionality can be had at more than 30 times the price point, for sure, but this is an excellent entry level eye movement study device.

  • The goggles are working great, and they have significantly increased the accuracy of my diagnosis. For the price, there is not any other equipment on the market that I know of that can do what the Vestibular First goggles can do. Patients enjoy being able to see videos of what their eyes do in certain positions. The customer service has been fantastic. Overall, I am very pleased with everything so far

  • Thank You Vestibular First for a great product at a great price. I use (your goggles) as an ongoing evaluation tool with every patient across a broad spectrum of neurological presentations. It has also become invaluable in helping people see and understand functional inefficiencies that may be contributing to their symptoms and as a way for them to visualize progress over time.

  • I highly recommend purchasing these goggles. When the goal is to get results, more expensive equipment doesn’t always equate to better outcomes. These goggles are a perfect price point to get more pieces to the puzzle.

  • I am now wondering how many subtle objective responses I must have missed throughout the years by just using Frenzels and the central suppression that must have occurred in loads of patients, despite their blurry vision. I’m seeing so many more subtle signs now and being able to watch the replay of the video without having the added strain of guiding the patient’s head has allowed me to see tiny things that I know I wouldn’t have picked up upon previously.

  • I have been using the Vestibular First infrared video goggles in my clinic and find them excellent. Because of the low cost I will not hesitate to upgrade my existing video goggles to Vestibular First as needed over time, and will be able to equip more exam rooms. I have recommended them to many physicians and PTs who have come to see patients with me. The software platform is very capable and has allowed me to save exams in a way that is easy to recover for review, editing and teaching. This product will make a higher level of care available to the many underserved patients with balance disorders.
