Phantom Chromatopsia

Phantom Chromatopsia

This term has been coined to refer to the complaint of patients who are blind or nearly so that a color, usually golden or purple, enlarges to

invade the entire visual field. This is presumably cortical in origin, and has been described as an hallucination. "Phantom vision" may describe a similar phenomenon.
