To our Friends:

The VSI continues to work diligently with our team of scientists, doctors, software engineers, graphic designers and attorneys to provide a device that will reduce Visual Snow and related symptoms for some. Unfortunately, we will require a little more time to make final revisions.

The development of this project has been time consuming and expensive. We are not offering a cure right now, but a potential treatment. We ask for your patience and understanding while we try to make available the best possible resource that will provide relief for many dealing with Visual Snow.

We expect our launch date to be summer of 2019.

Thank you,

The VSI Team
