Thank you for the question. I am Dr.A.S.Desai, certified ophthalmologist and I look forward to answering this question for you.

Iguess there is no name for this condition or atleast I am not aware of any. However I suspect that with a damaged optic nerve in the left, which probably has no useful vision and limited vision in the right eye, the images might be pretty blurred which makes him assume what the object could likely be. Looks like he has more than one eye problem and the visual problem is multifactorial. His ophthalmologist can throw more light in this regard as he in the only one to have examined the patient's eyes.

Hope this helps you to take the right decision. Take care.

Thank you,my feeling is that the brain is not receiving the images correctly from the damaged optic nerve.
