VisionSim ($0.00) Braille Institute's VisionSim app for iPhone and iPad 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.
