VisionSim


VisionSim Application - for Android devices.

Braille Institute's VisionSim app for Android was developed to allow people with healthy vision to experience the world through the eyes of a person experiencing one of four degenerative eye diseases: macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and cataracts.

Using touch-screen controls, the user can select one of the four simulators to replicate the symptoms of that particular disease. The application uses the camera in the iPhone or Android to allow the user to see the world through digital filters simulating the symptoms and experience of the disease. Using sliding touch-screen controls, the user can manipulate the severity of the symptoms.

The real-time still images can be saved by the camera and stored for later review, or to be shared.

The application also provides basic information on each of the eye diseases including symptoms, causes and treatments. The user can also access Braille Institute's website or contact Braille Institute directly via email for more information.

This application was designed to foster understanding and compassion for the millions of people affected by these eye conditions.

Wasn't what I had in mind I was looking everywhere for a simulator that I could use to show people how I see the world. I wear glasses and suffer from astigmatism. This app doesn't show any of that. But it's a good app for people to see what others see with those vision impairments.

Behind it's iOS counterpart There's only 4 filters on this version. The iOS counterpart has tons more than this version. it would be nice if the two were on par with each other.
