The Augmented Reality Eye App

See what the world would look like if you had an eye disease that threatened your sight like glaucoma.
Explore the human eye using augmented reality with AR Eye brought to you by Prevent Blindness®!

Download and launch the app, and aim the vision simulator at the image you want to see through the eyes of someone with vision challenges. Or, aim your device’s camera at the image target, and experience a virtual walkthrough of a human eye.

AR Eye has three modes: an animation mode that explains how our vision works, an interactive mode that allows you to select and learn more about the parts that make up our eyes and an impaired vision simulator which simulates what it would be like to have five different eye diseases.
