Be My Eyes – Helping the blind
By Be My Eyes
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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
- Add the languages you speak in settings
- An easy way to make a difference for blind or visually impaired people

Blessed to be a volunteer blessing others.
I’ve taken two calls since I joined a few months ago. What joy it brings me to help. I think everyone should have this app. The only thing I can say to someone considering joining as a volunteer, “Do it!” It gives you the best feeling to help someone by being their eyes. You will not regret it!
I like the idea of this app. However, I am uncomfortable with their privacy policies. It seems like they want to collect a lot of personal information and they even say they will give your information to other organizations. I’m deleting the app. It’s a shame because I really did want to help.
What a fantastic idea! I got my first call about a day after I installed, a nice gentleman wanted to know what cereal was in the box on his counter.
Warmed my heart to be able to help in even a small way.
