Tobii and RightEye partner to create eye-tracking system


RightEyerighteye-tobii vision test partnership and Tobii announced that they have forged a partnership to develop new hardware solutions for RightEye vision tests and training games for healthcare, vision and sports markets.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Tobii to advance our product and offer customers a more portable, integrated eye-tracking system to further enhance their users’ experience with RightEye tests and training games,” Adam Gross, RightEye CEO and co-founder, said. “RightEye is transforming health and vision care by giving doctors and coaches a better way to see how our eyes and brain are working together. This solution is unique because it offers a single platform that delivers a broad range of assessments using eye tracking, from screening for concussion and other brain health issues to identification of athletes’ vision strengths and weaknesses to detection of early indicators for autism and Parkinson’s disease, even flagging vision issues that may be impeding reading. As we keep developing and adding new tests and training games, this list will continue to grow.”

RightEye uses eye-tracking technology for patient care and vision performance while Tobii creates the technology. The new system from the collaboration will deliver RightEye’s vision tests and training games.

Eye movement data gathered from the games will be analyzed by RightEye’s cloud-based software that will then create a report after the test or training activity. The report includes information like visual speed and accuracy, visual processing, depth perception and dry-eye indicators.

“At Tobii, a core part of our mission has always been to allow our customers to use eye tracking to improve the lives of people around the world. For more than a decade, we have served academic researchers with tools contributing to pioneering breakthroughs, and we have helped users of all ages communicate through our own eye-control solutions,” Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Tobii, said. “As a technology supplier, we also collaborate with companies in a broad range of specialized markets such as medical and diagnostics. We are very excited about the opportunity to expand the use of eye tracking into vision care and sports through the collaboration with RightEye.”

RightEye systems are currently in 100 independent optometrist offices across the U.S. and are used by hospitals, the military and professional sports organizations.
