What are saccades?A saccade is one of the three eye movements. It is a fast and sudden eye movement in which the eye spontaneously targets an object, but no information acquisition takes place. When a text is read, the forward jumps of the eye are called saccades (Latin: jerky). It is also referred to as a "jump in the eye". Depending on the reading competency, you have different lengths, with eight to nine letters from one fixation to the next being classified as normal in reading research. In addition to the saccades there are two further eye movement patterns, the regressions and fixation.
Why an visual training?The exercises of the saccadic training can help to awaken the potential of the eyes by solving various tasks on the computer. Here is an example of such a search task:
In this exercise, the user has to look for a random number on the screen with his eyes and then move the mouse over it. It must not move the head, so that the eyes make saccadic movements and are trained like this.

«...significant increase in reading ability»«The saccadic training was used to improve the visual field. In this training, the person is stimulated by intensive visual stimulation to perform search movements in neglected areas of the visual field. A recent interim evaluation showed that the response to presented stimuli was significantly faster. In everyday life, this is shown, for example, by better locomotion in a wheelchair, a significant increase in reading ability, a generally more intensive perception of stimuli, and improved integration of the right side of the body, which is relevant, for example, for gait training.» Therapist of Mrs S.
«...as independently as before»«Through a recommendation I came across this training because of an optic nerve problem. The many different exercises and simulators have motivated me to train frequently (daily). The training was worthwhile, because after seven months I was as independent as before.» Mr S.
