[Fenomena] PES (Phantom Eye Syndrome)

PESSome people who lost their eye claim they “see” the strange phantom images. It is known that amputees often feel the so-called “phantom sensations.”

Much more strange manifestation of this phenomenon occurs in people who have lost one eye – they “see” some mysterious images of the eye , which no longer exists or missing eyes feel any other way . Researchers from certain university recently conducted the largest study on the so-called “phantom eye syndrome“, which was attended by 239 patients who had lost an eye as a result of cancer .

It turned out that 60 percent of these patients are familiar with phantom experiences in varying degrees – from inexplicable visual perceptions to this hallucination .

Sometimes these visions included images of people standing in a field of view of the patient. And hallucinations are most common for young people , and pain in the absence of eye – for those who are depressed or depressed.

Meanwhile, the causes of the phenomenon of ” phantom eye” remain a mystery from medical perspective.

But if we look in different point of view there are clue to explain this phenomenon. Try to confrim again what the cause and the result from this PES phenomenon.

#Clue 1 : Phantosmia

Phantosmia is an olfactory hallucination. A hallucination is the sensory perception of something with no basis in reality, as opposed to an olfactory illusion, which is a misinterpretation of a physical stimulus; in the case of an odor it is known as parosmia. Phantosmia is the perception of a smell in the complete absence of any physical odor. The perceived odor can range from pleasant to disgusting. Although the causes of phantosmia are uncertain, it often occurs with neurological and psychological disorders such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, Parkinsons disease, epilepsy, neuroblastoma, and frequent migraines.

#Clue 2 : Anosognosia

Anosognosia is viewed as a deficit of self-awareness, a condition in which a person who suffers a certain disability seems unaware of the existence of his or her disability. It was first named by the neurologist Joseph Babinski in 1914. Anosognosia results from physiological damage to brain structures, typically to the parietal lobe or a diffuse lesion on the fronto-temporal-parietal area in the right hemisphere. Whilst this distinguishes the condition from denial, which is a psychological defense mechanism, attempts have been made at a unified explanation. Both anosognosia and denial are almost always connected with damage in the right hemisphere. Split-brain research suggests that this asymmetry points to a neurological answer. Anosognosia is sometimes accompanied by asomatognosia, a form of neglect in which patients deny ownership of their limbs.

#Clue 3 : Clairvoyance

The term clairvoyance (from French clair meaning “clear” and voyance meaning “vision”) is used to refer to the ability to gain information about an object, person, location or physical event through means other than the known senses, i.e., a form of extrasensory perception. A person said to have the ability of clairvoyance is referred to as a clairvoyant (“one who sees clearly”).

Claims for the existence of paranormal and psychic abilities such as clairvoyance have not been supported by scientific evidence published in high impact factor peer reviewed journals. Parapsychology explores this possibility, but the existence of the paranormal is not accepted by the scientific community. Parapsychology, including the study of clairvoyance, is an example of pseudoscience.

With 3 hints above, you can imagine what is PES in true meaning! This phenomenon like curse and bless in the same time for the one who experienced it. But i’ll not explain it in detail, you must find the answer within that clue and the conclusion will appear by itself.
