Vision Impairment Simulator

Experience various vision impairments in real-time with our Vision Impairment Simulator. Adjust parameters to simulate Myopia, Cataracts, Glaucoma, and more.

Explanation of Controls and Simulated Conditions

Blur: Adjusts the level of blurriness, simulating Myopia or Hyperopia. Increasing the blur increases the effect.

Brightness: Simulates Cataracts by adjusting the visual brightness, mimicking glare sensitivity.

Contrast Sensitivity: Modifies image contrast to mimic Glaucoma or AMD, affecting the perception of light and dark.

Peripheral Vision Loss: Simulates conditions like advanced Glaucoma by reducing peripheral vision, creating a tunnel vision effect.

Color Saturation: Adjusts color intensity to simulate Color Vision Deficiencies, such as Deuteranopia or Protanopia.

This simulator is a valuable tool in various settings:

The Science Behind It

The simulator is grounded in the principles of human visual perception. It modifies visual stimuli in ways that mimic the physiological effects of common eye conditions. By adjusting the parameters, one can experience how visual acuity, field of view, color perception, and contrast sensitivity are affected by these conditions, providing a window into the world as seen through different eyes.
