Eye Tracking Problems
In addition to converging and focusing, another crucial use of our eyes is to scan and to guide movement accurately and efficiently. This is essential for keeping our place when reading, and orienting ourselves in the environment. Some individuals will have excessive head movement when tracking with their eyes, or make seemingly careless errors in reading, walking, playing sports or driving. Lenses, prism, or therapy may be helpful tracking across the midline and decreasing excessive head movement.
