This thesis focuses on understanding the nature of fixational eye gaze in humans. It tries to model eye gaze in a variety of methods: Descriptive statistics, wavelet analysis and it uses self similarity calculations to show that fixational eye-gaze indeed possess stochastic long range dependance and then it calculates Hurst parameter. This thesis also addresses the the practical side of eye-gaze. It develops a number of novel two- and three-dimensional applications to show the usefulness of eye gaze as a pointing device, in particular as it applied to patients with Locked-In syndrome. Among the applications is Daisy application which is a full featured word-processing software that shows the usefulness and ease of use of eye tracking as a pointing device. Furthermore, the thesis shows how eye tracking could be used in assisting surgeons during surgery by providing 3D navigation of a human organ.
