Abstract: Background: The ocular motor system is complex and dependent on the cooperation of many different areas of the brain. Ocular motor functions may be disturbed by various factors resulting in strabismus, and abnormal fixational behaviour, which may interfere on a multitude of visual functions. To study binocular functions orthoptic methods may be used and when studying visual fixation eye-trackers may be used. However, previous orthoptic studies often lack precise definitions, and studies of visua... more
