What are saccades?A saccade is one of the three eye movements. It is a fast and sudden eye movement in which the eye spontaneously targets an object, but no information acquisition takes place. When a text is read, the forward jumps of the eye are called saccades (Latin: jerky). It is also referred to as a "jump in the eye". Depending on the reading competency, you have different lengths, with eight to nine letters from one fixation to the next being classified as normal in reading research. In addition to the saccades there are two further eye movement patterns, the regressions and fixation.
