Eye tracking allows psychologists to make broad distinctions between groups of participants. Therefore, it may be entirely possible to exploit these distinctions in order to create screening tools for potentially diagnosing various conditions. These diagnostic techniques may have a number of advantages over exiting techniques. However, in order to develop such screening tools it would be beneficial if eye tracking systems were easy to access and use. There are a number of ways to improve accessibility of eye trackers: affordability, transportation, ease of use. This positional paper explores how HCI (Human Computer Interaction) eye trackers can be used for diagnostic purposes of psychological conditions.
