One of the fascinations of Clinical Neurology is that patients, in describing their symptoms, can take us on a "Cook's Tour" of the brain. Visual symptoms - whether positive experiences such as phosphenes or visual loss are no exception to this. Changes in colour vision are often especially salient to both patient and clinician and are used every day in the clinic in diagnosis and monitoring. I have been particularly interested in recording patients' descriptions and where possible images of visual symptoms. This talk will summarise highlights of 40 years' experience in this endeavour.
