About Be My Eyes

When you are blind or with a low vision, you sometimes need to rely on someone else's eyes to solve everyday tasks.

In Denmark, Hans Jørgen Wiberg created Be My Eyes, a free app launched in 2015. Thanks to the app, blind or low-vision individuals can connect with sighted volunteers and company representatives who assist them through live video calls.

More than 5 million volunteers have signed up to assist blind and low-vision users, making the app the biggest online community for blind or low-vision people.
Be My Eyes also became the largest micro-volunteering platform in the world.

Be My Eyes also partners with companies and offers a variety of solutions —Specialized Help, My Eyes at Work, Corporate Volunteering, Be My Eyes Careers…— to improve accessibility for consumers and in the workplace.
