Just like everyone, blind people also dream
You may not always remember when you wake up in the morning, but everyone dreams at night. Blind people are no exception. Still, we can’t help wondering what blind people “see” when they dream. Are you curious about this? This article will provide the answer.
Blind people also dream
People who are blind dream as much as people who can see. That’s because dreams are generated in our brain. Dreaming is a function of our brains, and not our eyes. There are subtle differences in the dreams of blind people, and people who can see. Some blind people actually see images in their dreams, depending on their age when they lost their sight.
Can blind people “see” in their dreams?
People who were born blind or became blind at a young age (up to 5 years old) have no vision in their dreams. People who went blind after the age of five or six do have visual dreams. So, blind people can still “see” in their dreams, if they have stored enough memories in the brain from when they were able to see. However, people who lost their sight at a very young age still dream, but other senses play a much more prominent role in their dreams.
