Saccade pyramids help to train accuracy of eye movements and ocular coordination. Saccades are the quick movements of the eyes when someone’s gaze shifts from one point to the next. Smooth pursuits are the movements used as we follow an object moving slowly in space. To read, we use a combination of saccades and smooth movements. Some people have poor control of their tracking and eye movements, which can cause problems when reading because the eyes will not be accurately move to the next word or line on a page. Sometimes people will need to hold a finger under each word to guide them where to look: we call this proprioception. By practising moving the eyes from letter to letter without the guide of a finger, the visual system should improve its speed and accuracy of ocular movements.
