    Ok so today I tried downloading some VR games and I'm having the same issue. The SteamVR interface opens in the headset but I can't control anything because I don't have controllers. Really need the eye-tracking for that menu or else I can't starts up any games. For a reason, Virtual Desktop is working because it apparently skips the SteamVR interface.

    Hi,

    Even though eye tracking can be used to gaze at the user interface, we still recommend using a controller to confirm that what you are looking at is actually the option you want to select. E.g. using blinking might be a bad idea, as we naturally blink, resulting in false positive input.

    Unfortunately we haven't developed any content that uses our eye tracking as such an input device in Steam. However in theory, since people can download our SDK (https://www.getfove.com/developers/) anyone can develop content that implements our eye tracking as a controller in (game) content. We would like to encourage our community to do so, as to increase the availability of eye tracking enabled games and tools.
