What causes sight loss with dementia? Because dementia typically affects our older members of society, there is an inherent link with typical aging changes of the eye such as cataract and acular degeneration. Other health conditions, such as stroke, can also play a part in siht loss.
But sometimes it is the dementia itself causing the problems. Damage to the brain can cause it to lose its ability to understand what the eyes are seeing - misinterpreting visual information. For example patterned curtains can look like a face.
There's a link below to some great information about sight loss and dementia.
