For all my life I thought I was having the same visual experience as everyone else, struggling to see at night battling a cloud of static, having floaters come and go, sensitivity to light, after images and even glowing halos around objects. This year I finally got my answer and was diagnosed with visual snow syndrome.
Visual Snow Syndrome is a neurological condition. This means there is nothing wrong with the eyes of the people affected but in the process of communication between the brain and eyes something goes wrong which impacts an individual’s vision, hearing, and quality of life. Patients see flashing lights, flickering dots, and static, which obstruct their visual field 24/7. There is no relief for them, even when their eyes are closed. VSS also causes many other debilitating visual & non-visual symptoms.
Visual Snow affects an estimated 2-3% of the world’s population. The VSI has already heard from people in over 71 countries and counting! Your Donation goes to...critical VSS research, global awareness, treatment development to reduce VSS symptoms, and additional resources that will benefit VSS patients, as well as the medical community.
