Revolutionize disease screening and treatment with eye tracking

Eye tracking offers a window into disease development by capturing subtle changes in eye movements that are associated with various brain and eye disorders. This non-invasive technique opens new avenues for early detection, tailored interventions, and personalized treatment, marking a significant leap in healthcare practices.

Timely and unbiased assessment

Neurological, psychiatric, and eye disorders can manifest in cognitive and oculomotor function impairments in viewing behavior. Eye tracking can detect these issues early on, enabling further exploration and timely intervention.

Eye tracking in clinical research studies

Clinical research studies reveal eye movement biomarkers in various clinical conditions.

Eye tracking is used in the assessment and screening in these fields:

  • Neurodegenerative disorders: Mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s

  • Neurodevelopmental disorders: Autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder

  • Neuropsychiatric disorders: Anxiety, major depressive disorder, schizophrenia

  • Neurological conditions: Concussion, traumatic brain injury

  • Ophthalmology: Visual field assessment, glaucoma, strabismus

  • Language disabilities such as dyslexia

Effective and personalized treatment

Eye tracking solutions allow efficient and easy monitoring of the treatment and immediate feedback on intervention success. Incorporating eye tracking into treatment and rehabilitation programs allows for personalized, data-driven methods that cater to individual needs and progress.

Eye tracking in treatment and rehabilitation

Various clinical conditions can benefit from eye tracking-based treatments.

Eye tracking is used to aid treatment and rehabilitation in these fields:

  • Neurorehabilitation: Stroke, traumatic brain injury

  • Speech and Language Treatment

  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) interventions

  • Attention and concentration training: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder

  • Physical rehabilitation: Motor coordination and movement control

  • Psychiatry: Major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder

  • Ophthalmology: Lazy eye, amblyopia

Benefits of eye tracking

The advantages of using eye tracking in disease assessment and treatment:

Early Detection

Eye tracking can detect subtle changes in eye movements that might indicate the presence of diseases at early stages. This enables timely intervention and treatment.

Objective Measurements

Eye tracking provides objective, quantifiable data, reducing reliance on subjective patient reports and improving the accuracy of the assessment.

Personalized Therapy

Analyzing each patient’s gaze patterns facilitates tailored treatment plans and monitoring the effectiveness of an intervention.


Eye tracking is non-invasive and well-tolerated, minimizing patient discomfort, especially compared to more invasive diagnostic techniques. Suitable for small children or elderly populations.

Flexibility in disease assessment

Specific tasks can pick up different areas of impairment, including thought process, cognition, executive control, and oculomotor control.
