What is Visual Fixation?

Fixation is the ability to aim the eyes accurately. Static fixation is the ability to focus on a stationary object when reading a word or working a math problem.

Saccadic Fixation

Saccadic fixation is the ability to move the eyes quickly and accurately across a page to read a line of print.

Pursuit Fixation

Pursuit fixation is the ability to follow a moving object with the eyes.

These complex operations require split-second timing for the brain to process the information received and to track the path of the moving object. Problems in these areas can impact someone's ability to read, drive a car, or participate in sports.

People with visual fixation problems may be diagnosed with Oculomotor Dysfunction
