Examining extraocular movements

There are three cranial nerves controlling eye movement. But how do you find out which have been compromised and where the lesion is? In this video, you'll learn to test and analyze eye movements through CN 3 (Oculomotor), 4 (Trochlear), 6 (Abducens) so that you can identify any abnormalities and follow the breadcrumbs to find out which nerves are affected and what's happened to them. In this video, you'll learn to test and analyze eye movements through CN 3 (Oculomotor), 4 (Trochlear), 6 (Abducens) and identify commonly encountered abnormalities.
