How to use "Saccadic" in context?
Invisible yet powerful forces are at work in our eyes as we glance from one object to another. Referred to as saccades, these rapid eye movements involve the adjustment of the eye's focus. Saccades can be automatic or voluntary, but all involve a change in the point of view of the eyes.
Every time we take a saccade our eyes briefly jump to a new location, often to cover a very small distance. We make these quick, unplanned movements so often that we barely notice them. But the cumulative effect of all our saccades can lead to a host of vision problems.
