    Blind people do dream in visual images. It is indeed true.

    Considering blind people, there are two main possibilities:

    1. A person cold be blind by birth.

    2. A person could have lost their eyesight later in life.

    Considering case 1, a person can still dream with visual images, there lies a possibility. This is so, as though the person has not seen anything or felt anything, but dreams are events of our imagination. We dream about things we adore. Hence people who are blind by birth dream with visual images too as though they have not seen anything for once, but in dreams, imaginations can have any route.

    Considering case 2, a person who has become blind later in their life, can definitely dream of visual images. This happens so because of the memories of the last thing they have seen before losing their eyesight. For such people, and many others, the dreams are consequences of event that remember at back of our mind. These are dreams that are combination of imagination, infactuation and reality. Hence their dreams can have real life incidents and objects.

    Dreaming is possible for anyone ad everyone. We cant ask people about their dreams directly or check if they see visual images in dream or not. This is so because, we as normal people too, do not remember most of our dreams just after waking up too.

    Some might see dream as a nightmare while some enjoy dreaming about unreal things.

    It all about perspective.

    I hope this answer helps!😊
