Yes: A hallucination is an experience in which a person sees (or hears, feels, or tastes) something that seems real, but is not really there. The person is awake during the hallucination. Causes include drug abuse or withdrawal, chemical imbalances (liver or kidney failure), medicine effects, psychiatric illnesses (schizophrenia, ptsd), brain tumors, delirium, dementia, sleep disorders, etc.
