A high tech pair of glasses is helping doctors diagnose people who've suffered a stroke.

The device measures tiny eye movements that doctors can't see.

The movements can confirm if a patient is having a stroke or a non life-threatening condition like vertigo or dizziness.

The glasses have only been tested on a small number of patients.

Researchers hope the device will one day replace expensive brain scans.
