Ocular apraxia is a form of apraxia that affects the eyes. Now, what does that mean in plain English? Well, have you ever seen something out of the corner of your eye, then flicked your eyes over to look at it dead-on? Sure you have. That's what patients with ocular apraxia can't do. If you flash a light in the peripheral vision of a patient with optic ataxia, he or she won't saccade (i.e. move the eyes) at all, or will saccade to the wrong place. While this is certainly confusing for the patient, it isn't necessarily as disorienting as other visual disorders. Like simultanagnosia and optic ataxia, it generally arises from bilateral damage to the parietal and occipital lobes, and is one of the deficits involved in Balint's syndrome.
