Event Details & Abstract: 

Accurate remote eye fixation (gaze) detection is a challenging task, and requires at least one calibration step per eye with existing technologies. This talk presents an accurate and calibration - free technique for remote localization of the true fixation point of an eye by employing the characteristic birefringence signature of the radially arrayed Henle fibers delineating the fovea. Progress on the development of a diagnostic screening device for eye misalignment will be presented, and other potential applications will be discussed.
