Eperjesi, Frank and Akbarali, Nabila (2004). Rehabilitation in Charles Bonnet syndrome:a review of treatment options. Clinical and Experimental Optometry, 87 (3), pp. 149-152.


People with vision loss sometimes experience visual hallucinations associated with Charles Bonnet syndrome. The appearance of these hallucinations often causes anxiety for the sufferer and can be difficult for the attending eye care professional to manage. A review of the literature highlighted a range of visual, pharmacological and social management regimes that may alleviate these hallucinations, albeit using small samples in uncontrolled trials. Eye care practitioners should be aware of methods of rehabilitation in Charles Bonnet syndrome that may lead to resolution of the visual hallucinations.
