Saccadic Fixators

This entails a wall-mounted square board with a starburst design. Along the various striations of the starburst are lighted buttons. As the buttons light up, the patient works quickly to see how many of these lit buttons they can push before they go out. The key is to keep the head still. Peripheral vision can be enhanced by having the individual look at the center of the board and use only their peripheral vision to locate the lights. Saccadic fixators are employed by optometrists to test, evaluate and develop eye-hand coordination, reaction times and spatial integration. This works best for patients who have problems with eye movements, hand-eye coordination and peripheral vision.
