Charles Bonnet Syndrome

Up to half of all people with macular disease experience visual hallucinations, known as Charles Bonnet Syndrome. These hallucinations can range from unformed flashes of light, colours or shapes, to much more detailed imagery, such as disembodied heads, Edwardian people, snakes and other terrifying creatures.

Many people think they are losing their mind.
