Some blind people cannot see images when they dream.

Incidents often receive recurring questions about their experience.

BBC Mundo presents answers to some of these questions about perhaps lesser-known aspects of blindness.

Can the blind see images in dreams or not?

According to scientists, it depends. People blind from birth don’t understand how to see while awake, so they can’t see in dreams either. But most blind people lose their sight during their lives and can dream visually.

Danish researchers concluded in 2014 that the more time passes, the less likely it is that blind people dream of images.
