Diagnosing Charles Bonnet syndrome



There isn't a specific test for Charles Bonnet syndrome.

Doctors diagnose it by:
**talking to the person about their symptoms
**taking a detailed medical history

And in some cases, carrying out tests to rule out other possible causes of hallucinations, such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia

If a person has vision loss and they're experiencing simple or complex hallucinations and they don't have signs of dementia or mental illness, they probably have Charles Bonnet syndrome.
