My answer was yes. Two weeks before Mom passed she closed her eyes and never opened them again. She continued to be responsive. Like I said in other post, this occurred every so often before. When it happened and she talked she made sense. It was weird.
I remember my parents had their house like a cave with all the shades drawn, and it had to do with too much brightness from outside.
There are types which make people very fatigued, with almost no energy. So kind of: it is perhaps part of dementia AND she is really tired. If it isn't interrupting your mother's sleep pattern, I should leave her be.
The only thing you might like to check is that her eyes aren't sore or over-sensitive to light.
