The term eye tracking refers to the process whereby a person is able to smoothly and accurately follow a moving object from one point to another. Efficient eye tracking, for example, allows a person to follow a baseball moving across the playing field or shift their eyes easily along the line of print in a book. Normal eye tracking plays a significant role in reading, school performance and at the workplace. Individuals who suffer from eye tracking problems have slow, inaccurate eye movements and may require compensatory behaviours such as head movements or use of their fingers while reading a book to help with efficient eye tracking. Symptoms of this problem includes individuals frequently re-reading, loss of place when reading, omitting or skipping words while reading, or excessive head movements while reading. Eye tracking problems therefore can interfere with attention span, reading fluency and comprehension, copying, handwriting, and sports performance.
