Can treatment stop hallucinations from CBS?
JUN 15, 2021
Unfortunately, there are no known effective treatments for Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS).
In almost all cases, patients with this condition have advanced macular degeneration and the vision loss cannot be improved with treatment or cataract surgery. There are not any medicines that have shown success in relieving the hallucinations caused by CBS. The most effective approach is to explain the cause of the hallucinations to the patient and reassure them that they are not indicative of any underlying psychiatric disorder.
