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.

Editors' Notes

Pair up with visually impaired users, be their eyes and help them in times of need.

Please let people know about this App


Can’t say too much about how well the App works. As I’ve only been contacted for help about 4 times and only once did I actually connect to assist.
And that’s over about a 3-4 year period(I’ll come back to this in a bit).

It’s an absolutely great idea of how to improve people’s day to day lives. With minimal impact on either party.

How great is it to have a simple App that allows a person to gain almost instant assistance. Without the need for anyone to be around.
As soon as heard about this App I downloaded. Just thought, why wouldn’t you sign up to help others especially when you don’t really have to do that much.

However as my title say, you gotta let people know about this App. And not only people with sight but with people with sight issues.
There are just short of a million helps signed up but only 67k people with sight issues. And that’s are figures for worldwide. Hence why I’ve had so few people call for assistance.

So, download the App. Tell people about it and get them to do likewise. Please.

Great to help


This is a brilliant app. It rings rarely and often someone else gets there first, but it sits in the background and when you can help someone it’s great. In my time I have sorted out a partially sighted couples spice cupboard (they had 5 bottles of turmeric that made us all laugh like drains), I have helped a lady read some medical instructions, and tonight I was a valet and helped a city worker pick out 3 suit combinations. I have noticed the number of blind and partially sighted people using this has dropped over the 3 years I have had it, and that’s a shame, as it great to help people and the people I have helped have always seemed to appreciate it.
