This study implemented and tested a unique eye tracker-based computer game as training material for children with low vision in order to enhance their vision abilities. For the study, an eye tracker based eye training application for people with low vision was developed. It is a game that participant’s eyes follow the stimulus appearing on the screen. The training program was conducted for 3 weeks within 6 weeks period. The data gathered by single-subject research design methodology from an 8 years-old kid, who had approximately 5 percent vision abilities. The results have shown that use of eye tracker technologies might be appropriate to improve the vision abilities of the people with low vision.
