Explore NEI's virtual reality (VR) experience, See What I See, to see what it's like to live with common eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.

If someone you love has an eye disease, make sure they're seeing their eye doctor to get the help they need.

What’s New

Version 1.2

We updated the See What I See virtual reality (VR) experience to include the following:
• New eye diseases: We've added overlays for diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, created with input from eye disease experts.
• New scenes: We've added 2 new scenes — an office and a car — to give you a wider range of everyday experiences to explore.
• Improved UI: We've streamlined the layout of the app so you can easily navigate from screen to screen with the new diseases and scenes.
• Slider feature: We've added a slider that allows you to preview what the scene will look like with normal vision or with an eye disease before you enter the VR experience.
• Sharing feature: We've added an option to share a link with friends, family, and colleagues so they can download the app.
• Learn more feature: We've added an option to navigate to the National Eye Institute (NEI) website from the app so you can learn more about eye diseases and eye health.
