Visual Snow: Static moving within your field of vision that doesn't even go away with your eyes closed.
Do you ever see static like that from a television in front of your eyes?
Does this sound like you?
I am experiencing what I can only describe as “staticy vision”. It worsens in brighter lights & never goes away. If I look at something bright, then look away, I can see the outline of the image, & it fades away slowly. […] It’s extremely irritating & at my last appointment with the optometrist, he couldn’t find anything wrong. Does anybody have any advice?
A lot of people don’t even realize they have visual snow. A lot of people don’t even know that it exists.
This is literally how many people see the world. Yet no one has any definitive answers for us.
Basically, Visual Snow is a visual disorder that has little to no presence aside from niche message boards and facebook groups. I would really like to help change that.
Even the Wikipedia Page has to source youtube videos, facebook groups, and message boards due to the lack of information about visual snow.
More people need to know that visual snow exists.
More people need to know that they may have visual snow.
There is not currently a cure. Only things that have helped various people in different ways, and no one thing works on everyone.
