Do blind people dream?
Answer from somebody who has been blind since she was fairly young:
" Yes, blind people do dream. What they see in their dreams depends on how much they could ever see. If someone has been totally blind since birth, they only have auditory dreams.

For people I've met since, their faces are just blurs or how I imagine they look. To me, someone like my mother looks forever 30. "
