Abstract

Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS) is associated with varying degrees of distress and impairment. However there is no universally accepted or established treatment to manage this condition. We report a patient who had CBS secondary to severe glaucoma and cataract, leading to severe depression, who responded well to treatment with sodium valproate and sertraline.
