Good app, but it would be helpful if there were more conditions described in it. For example, Herpes Simplex Keratitis. This condition has rendered me "legally blind" and it's difficult for me to explain to people that while I am considered blind and unable to drive anymore, I can still see but obviously not very good. It mostly affects my ability to read printed material and my depth perception.

Good idea, but doesn't show a video on my phone. A concern that I have is that it will cause people to assume that everyone with a condition sees the same which could affect someone's life negatively for instance not allowing them to drive anymore.

This was very helpful in understanding how a loved one who is living with vision impairment sees things. He had tried to describe it to me before, but this app really helped me better understand. Thank you so much for making it available!
