Charles Bonnet syndrome is thought to affect between 10% and 60% of people with sight loss and causes people to see things that are not there, known as visual hallucinations.

Up to 100,000 people in the UK may have negative outcomes from Charles Bonnet syndrome that affects their daily lives.

The survey is conducted by GP on behalf of charity the Macular Society and its results will be shared with the society. Participants will retain anonymity unless permission to waive it is granted.

The 15-question survey should not take long to complete. Subject areas include GP experience of patients with sight loss and hallucinations, diagnosis, ability to refer and waiting times.
