Eye fatigue is a common challenge in eye tracking applications caused by physical and/or mental triggers. Its impact should be analyzed in eye tracking applications, especially for the dwell-time method. As emerging interaction techniques become more sophisticated, their impacts should be analyzed based on various aspects. We propose a novel compound measure for gaze-based interaction techniques that integrates subjective NASA TLX scores with objective measurements of eye movement fixation points. The measure includes two variations depending on the importance of (a) performance, and (b) accuracy, for measuring potential eye fatigue for eye tracking interactions. These variations enable researchers to compare eye tracking techniques on different criteria. We evaluated our measure in two user studies with 33 participants and report on the results of comparing dwell-time and gaze-based selection using voice recognition techniques.
