Lend Your Eyes
Be My Eyes enables any sighted person to lend their eyes to help the blind or visually impaired. As a volunteer, you’ll get a ping when a user requests help, and you can accept the request at your convenience.
Once connected, you’ll see the world through the user’s camera, and can support with things like reading a train schedule, turning down the thermostat, or making sure an outfit matches.
Be My Eyes is an extremely powerful platform whose time has come. Be My Eyes is my go-to-resource for those times when greater independence can best be achieved by knowing when and how to ask for help. – Visually Impaired User
I love answering calls because it humbles me that low vision or blind people go through a lot of extra work just to get through daily life… To be able to make it easier for them means the world to me. [Volunteering] always makes me smile even if I’m having a bad day. – Sighted Volunteer
