Posters and booklets on Charles Bonnet Syndrome available

Esme's Umbrella, the organisation that raises awareness of Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS), has new booklets and posters available.

CBS causes visual hallucinations in people with sight loss. The condition can be distressing and debilitating – not least because it may be confused, mistakenly, with the onset of a mental health condition, so it is important to raise awareness. If you would like some posters/booklets for your eye clinic, hospital ward, care home or optometry practice, please email Judith on

The publications have been produced with support from the Thomas Pocklington Trust. For more information about CBS, visit the Esme's Umbrella website.
