An Infographic about: How Blind People See the World - OrCam

It’s often difficult for people with low vision to explain to friends and family members what it’s like to struggle with a vision impairment; what it’s like see the world around you through a cloudy haze or floating spots. That is why we have created this infographic so that people with no vision problems could understand how blind people see the world.


We wanted to bring about a greater sense of awareness and understanding of what it’s like for those living with a vision impairment. Feel free to share this image with anyone that you think could benefit from it.

As you can see from the various images, each eyesight problem interferes with the vision in a different way. How blind people see the world, changes from one condition to another. Yet, it is a struggle no matter what the condition is. That is why it is important to provide blind or visually impaired people with the right tools, such as OrCam Read, to cope with their situation.
