While the augmentation of head-mounted displays (HMDs) with eye-tracking (ET) capabilities adds challenges to designing compact and portable displays, a systematic approach to integration offers opportunities to improve overall performance and robustness. To investigate the design and optimization of illumination schemes in an ET-HMD system, we present a simulated eye illumination and imaging system, which allows us to explore the critical parameters that affect the quality of the eye illumination. We present details on the modeling process and simulation results.
