The King-Devick test, as it's called, was originally developed in the 1970s as a way to detect dyslexia.

Cerebral blood flow: A biomarker for concussion?
Medscape
The first prospective evidence suggesting that concussion is associated with reduced cerebral blood flow, which recovers in most individuals within a few weeks, has been reported from a new study. The authors suggest that if these results can be confirmed and expanded in further studies, they could have important implications for the management of concussion, and cerebral blood flow may become an objective biomarker for the condition.
