Lend an Eye

Lend Your Eyes to the Blind

Your DGB for today is to download the Be My Eyes app. This app connects sighted people with people who have varying degrees of visual impairment.

How it works is the blind or visually-impaired person submits a request for assistance (think reading a medication label or food expiration date) and the sighted person connects with them over a video call and lends a hand with any day-to-day challenge presented.

Right now the app is only for devices with iOS (Apple) but you can sign up to be notified when an Android-compatible version is ready. After you download or sign up, post on social media with #BeMyEyes to spread the word.

Eye hope you find this peer-to-peer network as cool as we do. Sorry, that joke was totally cornea.
