    But a person who has never had sight is a different matter,I believe they can see in the minds eye,just like a sighted person,maybe if they "imagine"!

    :soap: :cat:
    Good point gig, I too have often wondered if blind people can see their dreams?, I support a lady who has had no sight and when people speak to hear she see's them I presume in her mind's eye as a colour, I once asked her what colour I was? she replied Yellow. So it does make you wonder.

    It's an interesting perspective but what, one wonders, is the situation for those who used to be able to see? 

    Are there still images in their dreams?

    Yes they would dream with images, because they have memory of what is out there to be seen.

    It's a fair opinion but has it been reported it's actually the case?

    Logically I would say yes, how could you vision something that you have never seen.

    It's not what I was asking, though.  I was wondering if persons who lost their sight, rather then being blind from birth, are still able to see in their dreams images based on the sight they once had. 

    Or might their brains lose the facility of creating images in dreams when they haven't had any visual signals from the eyes in a long time?  But perhaps visual memories are never forgotten, however dated they become?

    It's something, of course, that only a now-blind, formerly-seeing individual can actually report on.
