Abstract

Visual impairments affect the life of millions of people. Some of these impairments can be corrected or diminished. Visual stimulation is one way of visual rehabilitation, that has produced better results when used in the early years of life. As there is nothing standardized in this field, a platform named RehabVisual was developed (Machado et al., 2018; Santos, 2018). This platform has the objective of creating an individual visuomotor rehabilitation for children under two years old, that were born prematurely. In order to reach a therapists’ need, a video analysis tool was developed. This tool should be capable of following the motion of the patients’ eyes, with the purpose of facilitating and making the analysis of their reactions to the stimuli more objective. The solution developed on this paper consists on the creation of an eye tracker system, that does not need to be pre-calibrated and is low-cost. The eye tracker was tested in healthy individuals and the results show that is very effective in detecting horizontal eye variations.
