Overview:Moving eye exams from the physician’s office to your living room – This is the new reality. Mobile devices, the smart phones and tablets we use daily, are able to tell you the weather, the time, and the best place to get a lambchop in New Zealand, so the thought of being able to get information about your health shouldn’t be mind-bending. Currently, wearable sensors working in unison with mobile apps can gauge your sleep cycle, your heart rate, and other data points. This data can be extracted and modeled to give you feedback on how fast your metabolism is or the quality of your sleep. Eye tracking is one of the darlings in the wearable sensor space, and as the article in The Washington Post mentions, can be used with mobile apps to test for eye conditions, such as glaucoma. The researchers in this article are studying the eye movements of glaucoma patients vs. the eye movements of healthy subjects, when both groups look at similar images, to detect and model eye movement patterns specific to glaucoma patients. Though this research is in it’s early stages, it’s promising. However, eye tracking is the tip of the iceberg for vision testing.
