Hewitt D Crane, Carroll M Steele: Double Purkinje eye tracker. SRI International, Urban H Faubion, September 1, 1981: US04287410 (32 worldwide citation)

An eye tracker measures the point in space on which the eye is fixated. An input mirror reflects an input image into the eye and directs the Purkinje images so formed in the eye back into the eye tracker mechanism. The images are gathered by a collimating objective and directed through focusing and ...
