Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is one of the leading causes of blindness in the elderly. Visual loss associated with AMD often results in a central scotoma which is an alteration in the central vision, leading to distortion or loss of vision. Current methods of detecting AMD are typically manual, require holding fixation and an external response trigger. In this paper, we propose the use of eyegaze tracking to detect for the presence of AMD, using a simple set of test patterns. Experimental results show that the derived eyegaze measurements can help to identify individuals with AMD from healthy individuals. This could lead to the detection of AMD using eye tracking data, and could result in a potential system device for screening.
