A description of the experience

The Soul of things – Professor William Denton
Quoting Muller the German physiologist

A Jewess who had been for a long time blind became insane.  Her illusions were of the sight, and she was constantly haunted by strange visions.  After her death it was ascertained that the two optic nerves from the part at which they are united within the head which anatomists call the commissure to their termination in the retina were shrunk and wasted, so that they must have been wholly incapable of performing their functions
