Time to talk about Charles Bonnet

The Macular Society has launched a campaign to raise awareness of visual hallucinations caused by sight loss, known as Charles Bonnet Syndrome. They want to make people aware that these hallucinations are a natural experience and not a sign of mental illness, and are encouraging people to talk more about their hallucinations.

Visit the Macular Society website for more information about the campaign, to download an information leaflet on the condition, and tell your own story.

There was a live Twitter Q&A on 23 October with Dr John-Paul Taylor, Clinical Senior Lecturer/Consultant at Newcastle University, who is researching a treatment for Charles Bonnet Syndrome. Details of the questions asked and the responses can be found here.
