Charles Bonnet Syndrome Awareness Day 2018

16th November was the awareness day for Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS) - a condition which causes visual hallucinations in people with sight loss.

Esme's Umbrella is the Campaign Group for everyone working towards a greater awareness of CBS, which is surprisingly common, and may affect up to 50% of people with severe visual loss. It can also be terrifying and has a huge impact on quality of life. The group has recently launched a new helpline for anyone affected by CBS, which is being operated by RNIB: the number is 020 7391 3299.

The Macular Society has produced a range of resources on visual hallucinations, which can be accessed here.
