Fixation

Fixation is a term used to describe what we do when our eyes stop their normal movements to gather more detailed information.  In fact, our eyes make imperceptible, rapid movements even while “fixating” to ensure no loss of information.

Reading is a series of saccades (eye jumps) with brief fixations to allow the brain to gather and integrate information.
