I am a volunteer and it brightens up my day!

I love answering calls because it humbles me that low vision or blind people go through a lot of extra work just to get through daily life. And to be able to make it easier for them means the world to me. It ALWAYS makes me smile even if I’m having a bad day by helping. Everyone is so grateful and wonderful to work with. I even helped out a man with narrowed vision who voluntarily goes out and helps homeless people and needed help reading a SUPER small print sheet that had all the resources for people in need. He just needed to find the one for housing to help people get back on their feet. Not only are they giving back and volunteering, but I felt a part of it at the same time because I was able to help him find the resources he needed so he could give out to those he helps who are homeless. Someone with a disability giving back in the way they receive help themselves is the definition of giving forward. And I just think this is Suh an amazing app, with amazing people all over the world. I can’t want until my next call to help out someone new. Now if I could also meet them, that would just mean the world to me to meet these incredible people. They inspire me.

Such an easy idea. Such a brilliant idea. When I developed diabetes at the age of six years old I fully expected to be blind by the time I reached adulthood and most of my career decisions along the way took that into consideration. Even without the prospective future blindness, I would be happy to help someone else in such a simple but meaningful way. Now, over 50 years later, I’m fortunate to even still be alive and to be sighted and my eye doctors tell me that I may actually keep my site for good. If I lose it I would love the help of this app for myself but if I keep my eyesight I would still love to be able to help other people who were not so fortunate. Thank you so much for creating this opportunity. Just giving people the privacy and independence that this app affords so that they don’t have to always ask a family member or friend is a big deal. My other illnesses cause me to have to ask for help not infrequently, something many of us are not taught to do in some of our usual cultures. Thank you again.

I’m never given enough time to answer.

I recently read about someone who had troubles getting help because nobody answered. Well, I always try to answer, but I have to unlock my phone first. By the time I get it unlocked, the call has been passed to someone else. If I have more than a few seconds to answer, I would be able to answer more often. It would be great if the request came through as a FaceTime call; I think I don’t have to unlock my phone for that. Furthermore, I would be more useful if I could set my app to available or unavailable when I’m sitting idle or driving. Because of the issues I have answering and the rarity of requests, I have often considered deleting the app altogether.
Other than my two complaints, I have enjoyed the app. I really enjoyed helping the two folks I was able to assist. I’ll be honest, I get really excited when the opportunity to help someone arises. Helping others is what I enjoy most in life, but I would like more opportunities to do so. Thank you to the creators of Be My Eyes for creating something so wonderful. I don’t expect it to be perfect, but I hope my feedback helps improve the experience for everyone.
