The paper presents the results of an initial experiment aimed to check if it is possible to enhance a low vision stimulation intervention with interactive games. There were 35 children with normal vision and various vision deficits examined using three different interactive games. The interactivity was achieved with the usage of an eye tracker—a device that is able to register eye movements and recalculate it to a gaze point—a place on a screen where a child is looking at. The obtained results are encouraging as most of the children were able to fulfill all games’ achievements and expressed their engagement.
