Charles Bonnet Syndrome Awareness Day - 16th November
Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS) Awareness Day 2023 is on Thursday 16th November. To mark the occasion, Esme's Umbrella, is asking people to contact their general practitioner and other health professionals to raise awareness of the condition, using a pre-prepared letter.
CBS causes hallucinations in people with sight loss, and can be confused with a mental health condition. To download the letter, visit the Esme's Umbrella website, where you can also find out more about the support offered by Esme's Umbrella.
The Macular Society website also has information about CBS, including causes, symptoms and treatment.
