Title:

    Applying Virtual Reality for Systematic Gaze Pattern Evaluation in Simulated Retinitis Pigmentosa Patients

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    We apply virtual reality headsets with eye tracking capabilities to evaluate new training methods for patients living with loss of peripheral vision (“tunnel vision”). It can be shown that systematic gaze patterns, taught in a virtual reality environment, are able to significantly increase the effectively perceived visual area of the participants as well as reduce the number of obstacle collisions in navigation tasks.
