Eye Disease Simulator

Only the person who is visually impaired or blind really knows what it is like. Each individual’s precise conditions are different. To help family members and friends begin to understand, we pulled data and reporting from current clinical research and built this vision simulator.

typical vision

20/20 vision is normal vision acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at a distance.

glaucoma

 A group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve. This damage is often caused by an abnormally high pressure in the eye.

cataracts

A clouding of the normally clear lens of the eye.

macular degeneration

Wet macular degeneration is a chronic eye disorder that causes blurred vision or a blind spot in your visual field. It’s generally caused by abnormal blood vessels that leak fluid or blood into the macula (MAK-u-luh). The macula is in the part of the retina responsible for central vision. The other type — dry macular degeneration — is more common and less severe.

diabetic retinopathy

A condition caused by damage to the blood vessels in the tissue at the back of the eye (retina).

retinitis pigmentosa

An inherited degenerative disease. It slowly affects the retina and causes loss of night and side vision.

Total loss of vision in both eyes.

“Tim is a good man and he is doing great work. He came over and helped me get set up and away we went! My whole life is audio, now. My computer reads me any web page I want, tells me the time and the weather, lets me listen to radio stations, and all sorts of things.”
—Ed, client – 93 years young!
