How do you get hallucinations from Charles Bonnet syndrome?

ANSWER

Charles Bonnet syndrome causes people with vision problems like macular degeneration, glaucoma, or cataracts to see things. At first, you may not realize it's a hallucination, but eventually, you figure out that what you're seeing isn't real.
