I want to keep eye tracking for only one eye.

    We don't currently have the ability to track only one eye. You simply must track both and ignore one.

    The main reason to not track one of the eyes would be to reduce CPU usage, which would be nice, but is not a high priority for us. There are good reasons to track both, even if only one is needed, as algorithms can be used to cross check data from both eyes and improve accuracy.

    If you have a good use case (outside of reduced resource consumption) for tracking just one eye, we would be interested to hear about it!

    Thank you for your reply.
    The program I would like to develop is application development for the medical field using gaze tracking.

    I want to make an application that can diagnose the visual field of how much it is visible and can train eyes.

    For that reason, I want to be able to diagnose and train one eye at a time.
    In FOVE this time, it seems to me to sever eye gaze by one eye, so I will give up.

    Thank you very much.

    You should be able to diagnose one eye at a time, just by ignoring the gaze data for the other eye. You also have control of what content is displayed to each eye, so you can ensure that something shows up for one eye only (eg. a dot in the periphery), thus ensuring that only the one eye is tested at at time.
