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.

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.

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.

Easy and very rewarding

I have being a volunteer for nearly 3 years now, it’s very easy to register. I receive calls randomly once or twice a month. As a volunteer you have to be very quick to answer the call as many other volunteers receive the same call. The call turns into camera and most of the time it is to assist someone with use by date labels on groceries, helping to select what product is to eat first. Other time is about to help selecting colour of a dress or shirt. Calls are generally briefs, you can assist someone from anywhere around in the world. Great App, everyone should be a volunteer

Real life hero

I love this app. It gives vision impaired people the opportunity to be more autonomous about their actions and gives them more freedom, and my small moment of helping them makes me feel amazing. It’s the chance to do something good in the world, it’s a small action for me but it means a huge amount to them. It’s wonderful. Definitely jump on board!

Wonderful app

This is awesome! To be able to help someone with a simple (to the sighted) request, is great. I’ve had two calls so far; one to tell them the best before date on some mince, and one to count the number of coloured pills in a strip. Quick, easy, and exceptionally beneficial :)
