Visual Tracking Issues

To use our vision efficiently, the eyes must move accurately, smoothly, and quickly from lace to place.  Eye movements allow accurate scanning of the visual environment for information.  Every time a person looks from afar to something near them, , their eyes must accurately jump from one target to another.  The same is true for reading as the eyes jump from one word to another. Tracking is also important for following moving objects in sports, and for directing our eyes to move our hands towards a target. Eye-hand coordination in any activity starts with accurate eye movements.  Tracking skills are considered the fine motor aspect of vision, and like other fine motor skills, should continue to develop into adulthood. With tracking problems, eye movements are slow, inaccurate, or require head or finger movement to help the eyes track.  This can interfere with reading fluency and comprehension, copying, handwriting, and sports performance. Those with tracking problems may show the following behaviors or signs:  frequent loss of place during reading, skipping lines, omitting and substituting words during reading, head movement or finger pointing during reading, slow reading speed, poor copying,  and poor eye hand coordination.
