Abstract

Visual hallucinations in the elderly population are a common and frequently unapprised phenomenon. In these patients, often there are abnormalities of visual function. There are a few case reports that have demonstrated a decrease in visual hallucinations with the use of optical aids. Although this area is understudied, this article looks at the possible role that the low vision specialist may play in the reduction of visual hallucinations in the geriatric population.
