How Well do Your Eyes Work Together?
Do you know if your eyes are actually moving together? Are they capable of maintaining a smooth motion or do they struggle and have a tendency to jump from place to place? How accurately are they moving to a target when you’re looking at it?
These are all things the human eye is unable to see when watching someone perform these eye movements. However, with RightEye’s tracking system, we are able to record these micro-movements and play them back for you to see exactly how your eyes are moving together. RightEye’s system takes approximately 100 pictures per second to track the eye’s movements. This allows us to see if the movements are accurate, how fast the movements are, and if the eyes are moving together.
Perhaps your child is struggling with reading in school because their eye movements aren’t able to track in a straight line, or they’re jumping around from line to line so what they’re reading isn’t making sense. The RightEye system will track those movements and record them so we can play it back for you to see exactly how their eyes are moving. Once the assessment is completed, there are eye exercises that can be prescribed for your child to work on those eye movements used in reading. Once the training is completed, another assessment can be done to see how the child has improved.
If you or your child excels in sports, the RightEye system is a great way to see how your game can be improved. About 80% of perceptual input is visual. Even if you are seeing 20/20 if your eyes can’t track a target accurately, your perception of where the target is might be off, and thus your reaction to the target will be inaccurate as well. The same eye exercises can be done to improve the hand-eye coordination, eye tracking, and reaction time.
Do you know how fast your reaction time is? It is actually broken down into three separate events. First, the brain to recognize/initiate the eye movement required to the target, second, the amount of time it takes for the eyes to move to the target, and lastly, the time it takes to perform required action to the stimulus. The RightEye system is able to break down reaction time into these three separate events and measure where the lag is.
Technology has allowed us to better understand how the eyes are involved in complex processes involved in reading and sports. We can now measure and see the micro-movements occurring that make seemingly simple tasks happen. Book a consultation with Dr. Liaw today to see how RightEye can help you.
