Need a pair of sharp eyes? Or have some sight to lend? Be My Eyes is a simple, free tool to see the world better, together.
Be My Eyes connects you with a global community of volunteers and company representatives who are ready at a moment’s notice to help you see – to lend their eyesight and support with everyday tasks.
FREE. GLOBAL. 24/7.
Be My Eyes is a multi-lingual support community millions strong, available globally day or night, and has volunteers answering calls in more than 185 languages. Join the community today!
Sign up to get free visual support with tasks like reading small print, matching clothes, troubleshooting technology, setting up home appliances, or any other simple task a volunteer can complete over live video. If a task is too complicated or requires expertise, call one of our company partners for on-demand video customer support via Specialized Help.
If you have eyesight you want to share, sign up as a volunteer and answer calls from a person in need! Tasks are usually completed in just a few minutes, and if you’re busy there’s no need to answer – someone else will get it.
HOW IT WORKS:
1. Anyone 17 or older may sign up as a user or volunteer.
2. Calls are connected based on daytime timezone and language. Average wait time is about 15 seconds.
3. When a call is answered, a live one-way video (two-way audio) is initiated, allowing volunteers or company reps to see what’s in front of the user’s camera and provide verbal support.
Note: Specialized Help availability varies by region and company opening hours.

Ratings and Reviews
Perfect! BUT, people need to relax!!!!
‘Nuff said! It works extremely well!
46k blind people and 600k people helping!
This is why ‘we’, as helpers, don’t get many calls. There simply are “too many” volunteers to cater to people’s egotistical personalities. I see people complaining about not getting calls or not getting “enough” calls, so they delete the app.
If you don’t get calls often, it just means that the blind ARE being helped; maybe not by you, but by someone. Isn’t that kind of what it’s all about? People helping people!
DON’T download if you’re only doing it to satisfy your egotistical needs!
Empowering & Liberating
Wow - technology for humanity
Have only gotten 2 calls after being a member for 3 years.
But i guess thats a good thing
