Valvo (1971) researched that people who were born with normal vision but lost their sight due to accidents may also experience a dream. In such injuries, only the lenses of the eyes are damaged, such as corneal loss, without affecting deeper sensory structures in the brain.

He noticed that the people kept dreaming of visual images for a period of time after the blinding incident.
