Charles Bonnet Syndrome is sometimes called the ‘plaything of the brain’ for the blind and visually impaired. The syndrome isn’t associated with mental illness or dementia, yet people with it are able to ‘see’ things - like little wriggling children in pink and white pyjamas, or a goat riding on a bike through their lounge room. Learn more about this syndrome in Seeing when you're blind.
