Dreams of Blind people

Blind people do dream. According to author Charles W. Kimmins, as quoted in The New World of Dreams, researchers have found that "all dreamers becoming blind after the age of seven see in dreams even after an interval of twenty or thirty years." Those who became blind before age five, however, almost never see in their dreams. Generally, in dreams as in waking life, a person with one impaired sense compensates with other senses. Thus, a person who cannot hear often has especially vivid visual content in dreams, and a person blind from birth distinctly remembers sounds and tactile experiences in dreams. Being able to visualize while dreaming helps blind people use visual imagination when awake, which is vital for orienting the other senses. The deaf also have good dream recall, with the majority remembering dreams every night.
