Access visual assistance on demand, if you are blind or visually impaired, or lend your eyes to the blind or visually impaired if you are sighted.

Be My Eyes is all about connecting blind or visually impaired with sighted volunteers, to help the blind or visually impaired lead more independent lives. Benefiting and contributing to the community is easy.

Blind or visually impaired users can request help from a sighted volunteer, who will receive a notification. As soon as the first sighted user accepts the request, a live audio-video connection will be established between the two parts. The sighted helper can now assist the blind or visually impaired, through the video connection from the blind or visually impaired user’s rear-facing camera.

As a sighted user, you are part of the big Be My Eyes volunteer-network, so don’t worry about leaving a blind person hanging, if you are not able to answer a request. We will simply forward the request and find the next available volunteer.

The blind or visually impaired user can need help with anything from knowing the expiry date on the milk, to making sure that their clothes match.

- Live audio-video connection between blind or visually impaired and sighted users
- 90 % of calls answered within 30 seconds

Be My Eyes 👁👁


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.

Really disappointed


I read the instructions for the app which clearly stated to log out when you're unavailable. So, I did that, thinking I'll log back in when I've got a day off tomorrow. I got a call at 6:55am this morning while I was STILL LOGGED OUT. I'm upset because it woke me up, and also I was not coherent enough to take the call. I've now deleted the app as this for me is a failure of the software and borders on a breach of trust. The premise is a great idea but it obviously needs a lot more work.
