Lend your sight to blind and low vision people through a live video connection, or receive assistance through the global network of volunteers. Be My Eyes connects blind and low vision users with sighted volunteers or company representatives who can assist them with a range of tasks.
Blind and low vision users can request help from a sighted volunteer, who is notified on their phone. As soon as the first volunteer accepts the request for help, a live audio-video connection is established between the two parties. Through the blind or low vision user’s rear-facing camera, the volunteer can see the item or subject the user needs assistance with and provide the visual description he or she needs.
As a blind or low vision user, you can request assistance through Be My Eyes at any time of the day, from anywhere in the world, in more than 180 languages. Be My Eyes connects you to a sighted volunteer who speaks your language and can help you with anything from simple tasks, like checking expiry dates, to more complicated situations, like navigation or finding a lost item.
With the Specialized Help feature, you can receive help directly from our partner companies if you have issues or questions regarding their specific products or services. Just tap the Specialized Help option and choose a company from the menu to call through Be My Eyes. You will be directly connected to a company representative through a live video connection.
As a sighted volunteer, you’ll receive a notification when a blind or low vision user requires some assistance. The first volunteer to answer the request will be connected to the blind or low vision user, so don’t worry if you’re not able to answer the call, another volunteer will step in instead. Be My Eyes only takes a few minutes of your time, making it easy to fit into any schedule and make a real difference in another person’s day.

Making the world more connected
I absolutely love Be My Eyes. I am a volunteer and have been lucky enough to assist a few people since I have joined. It is really so easy to help. You get a phone call and the person needing help will ask you the question and you just need to answer. I’ve been asked things like which cereal says gluten free, reading instructions and reading numbers on a blood glucose machine. As someone who doesn’t have much free time outside of the kids and work, it’s nice to know there is still a way I can help others.
I did used to receive more calls in the past then I do now but I guess that is because there are so many volunteers willing to help which is a great thing. :)
Congratulations on creating such a fantastic and really fundamental app that brings people together.
be my eyes saved my life
let me tell you something people as a totally blind and hearing-impaired person I have lost my carer from a massive aneurysm! My carer would help me in day-to-day tasks of every day living, but now he's gone I can't always ask my neighbours for help, thank God for being my eyes! Today I had to use it to make sure that I could find some dog poo to clean up, then I had to use it to make sure that both my dogs were outside as someone was coming to do something for me, I have never ever had any problems with connectivity or assistance! I could seriously not be happier! Who ever developed this app needs a medal, maybe 1000 medals or maybe 1000 isn't enough, but seriously I have not had any problems :-)

Had the pleasure of assisting many people with different questions, from all over our globe. Have shared this app to many of my groups and know more people have loaded the App to their devices. Well Done to all who assist others without hesitation. Encouraging to see there are so many willing to help a person in need. 15 to 1.
Will continue to share, so more people blind and sighted can help each other.
