Q: Where is it?

The team at VSI is working around the clock to optimize the VIP experience.

Q: What exactly is the VIP?

It is a visual experience program designed to reduce VSS symptoms. It will be accessible via a desktop computer through our website. It will require about 10–20 minutes of viewing visual imagery per day.

Q: Why is it taking so long?

The VIP involves CGI, computer experts, as well as a collaboration between neuroscientists and researchers. The VSI wants to provide an optimum user-friendly experience.

Q: What is the charge or fee?

When launched, the VIP will be free for everyone.

Q: Will this work for everyone?

No, it will not. In trials, it has helped some reduce a cross section of their VSS symptoms. We hope this will be a helpful form of therapy. But rest assured, if it does not work for you, all other areas of VS research are being covered. As this information develops, you can look forward to more updates on our website and through our social media channels. There will always be other options and opportunities.

Q: When will VIP be available?

As of now, we are expecting late January or early February. We apologize for the delays. Oftentimes, they are to be expected as we learn more about this condition and try to create an optimum experience. In addition, if there is another promising area of research worthy of directing attention to, we will refocus our energies to achieve the best results for all.

We thank you for your understanding and patience.

New Visual Snow Syndrome Study!

The VSI has been working with Dr. Tsang in California and Dr. Shidlofsky in Texas. Both doctors have been highly successful in reducing, and in some cases, eliminating symptoms of Visual Snow Syndrome in their patients. When we learned that their philosophies and methods were strikingly similar and effective, the VSI put them in contact with each other. They are now collaborating on an enhanced VSS protocol. They will be accepting new patients for this study.

Today, the VSI will be releasing a series of informational videos on our YouTube channel in which Dr. Tsang and Dr. Shidlofsky discuss their experience in treating VSS. The VSI will also post video testimonials from their patients. We are enthusiastic and optimistic to share Dr. Tsang’s and Dr. Shidlofsky’s insights with the VSS community. If you would like to make an appointment with either Dr. Tsang or Dr. Shidlofsky, their contact information will appear at the end of each video. Watch the videos here: http://bit.ly/VSIYouTube.

We recognize that the majority of people with VSS cannot travel to California or Texas to take part in this study. Therefore, once the study has concluded, Dr. Tsang and Dr. Shidlofsky have agreed to make a series of instructional videos that will show their step-by-step protocol, which can be done at home. They will offer suggestions and techniques that will allow the use of household items versus in-office medical equipment. The VSI will also make these videos available.

We would like to thank Dr. Tsang, Dr. Shidlofsky, Kelsey NaPier, and Michael Neustifter for their kind and generous contribution to the VSS community.
