Dominic Ffytche of the Institute of Psychiatry in London told the British Association that 60% of patients suffering from common forms of vision loss had reported hallucinations involving faces.

“You would think it would be of a familiar face, perhaps a relative or someone famous. But they are not. They are often described as being grotesque,” he said. “

About 40% of people with eye disease hallucinate figures in costumes. These could be Edwardian costumes, knights in shining armour, military uniforms, Napoleonic uniforms, first world war uniforms.”

This happens, Ffytche told the Guardian, even in patients who have had both eyes removed.

Sight is certainly not required for a ghostly hallucination.

That is interesting to investigate further. Something worth thinking about in a world that is full of different ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Louise Eaton, 47, has been communicating with the spirit world since she was
just six years old and would hear mysterious voices and footsteps.

As an adult, she turned her gift into a career and has now been holding demonstrations for the past 13 years.

As she is completely blind, she says her disability helped her be a medium and
gives more authenticity to her readings as it means she cannot pick up on
body language or other clues, or tell who anybody in the audience is.

“There was one specific incident where there was a lady in the audience,
and her daughter had died,” said Louise, from Brighton.

“Her daughter came through and she was telling me her mum had worn a red
coat at the funeral that she liked, and I said, ‘You’re wearing it now,’ and
she was.

“There’s no way I would have known that. I’m completely blind and have no
light perception.

“Because one thing has been taken away, some of my other senses have been
heightened, so I think it’s made me better at picking up on atmospheres and
how people are feeling.”
