Cataracts simulator

What does the world look like when you have cataracts?

Cataracts are caused by a build-up of protein that clouds the eye’s lens, which can lead to blurred vision and eventual blindness. Everyone experiences this sight loss differently, but to give you an idea of what it’s like, we’ve created the cataract simulator below.

To use the vision simulator, enter an address, location or postcode in the box below and click Go. You’ll then be taken to your location and shown what it would look like if you had cataracts. Use the left and right buttons on your keyboard, or the left and right buttons on the side of the map, to rotate the screen.
