Flicker vertigo is an imbalance in brain-cell activity caused by low-frequency flickering of a relatively bright light. The strobe light effect can cause persons who are vulnerable to flicker vertigo to have following symptoms:
  • Become disoriented or nauseated.
  • Blink rapidly.
  • Rapid eye movements behind closed eyelids.
  • Lose control of fine motor functions.
  • Muscle rigidity.
This situation can also occur in following cases without strobe light:
  • Use electronics on low-light conditions for extended periods.
  • Sunlight flickers through a tree-lined street.
  • Sunlight reflects off of water, especially off of waves.
  • Fixed wing flight.
  • Look at or through a slowly spinning propeller.
