 A 49-year-old woman complained of severe oscillopsia and diplopia with bilateral MLF syndrome after hemorrhage at the dorsal portion of the pons for seven months. Thus, the rehabilitation program could not be taken ahead. The right eye presented horizontal pendulum-like movement with slight vertical pendulum-like movement, and the left eye presented the vertical pendulum-like movement. The position of the right eye was lower than that of the left eye(skew deviation). The facilitation exercise using the vestibule-ocular reflex reported by Kawahira(2005)was introduced for the purpose of the improvements adductive eye movement on the non-gazed sides caused by bilateral MLF syndrome. After the introduction of the facilitation exercise for her eye symptoms, her diplopia and oscillopisia were improved, and her rehabilitation program could be advanced.
