The goal of this study was to explore the latency of eye movements both in direction and in depth in dyslexic children. Sixteen dyslexic (mean age: 11.12 ± 1.08 years) and 14 non-dyslexic children (mean age: 12.08 ± 0.99 years) were tested. Two different paradigms (simultaneous and gap) were used to elicit pure saccades at far and at near distance, pure vergence (convergence and divergence) and combined saccade–vergence movements. Horizontal eye movements from both eyes were recorded… CONTINUE READING
