A low-cost, high-resolution system for measuring eye position information and eye movement has been developed. The Vision Control System VCS equipment can be worn as a lightweight headset. The ability to operate equipment via eye movement empowers individuals by keeping hands free to perform other tasks. Potential applications of the VCS equipment include its use in surgical training as an on-screen pointing device to highlight areas of interest, use by paramedics to relay information at the scene of an accident, use to examine a radiologist's visual scanning technique in reading films, and use in ophthalmology to monitor eye behaviour.
