In this work, we address three common misconceptions about visual impairments with an interactive virtual reality simulation. We raise awareness of the phenomenological consequences of central and peripheral field defects and the remaining visual potential of "legally blind" individuals. The goal is to sensitize the public to the effects of visual impairments on daily life activities.
