In brief: No

In brief: No

Reassurance that this is not an uncommon problem is important.
If the patient is very upset about these phenomena, then a psychiatry consult may be warranted.

In brief: None specific

There is no specified direct therapy for the charles bonnet syndrome of visual hallucinations.
Often, patients are become depressed and withdrawn with worsened symptoms. Some anti-depressents can help as well as therapy to help patients understand what they are experiencing.
