Introducing Eyeware

Eyeware is a smartphone app that uses augmented reality (AR) to create an immersive experience to give you a glimpse into what it might be like to experience a range of eye conditions. 

RNIB collaborated with Transport Systems Catapult (TSC) to develop Eyeware. Visual filters representing some of the main eye conditions are applied over the world around you, providing an insight into the everyday experiences of blind and partially sighted people. These conditions include age-related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa and colour blindness.
