Message from our friend Lukas Hose 🫶:

“Dear VSS-Community.
As long as I can remember, I have had a colorful veil of flickering dots in my visual field. As I shut my eyes, the flickering itself is accompanied by several other visual symptoms - like a negative image of light sources deforming in front of my inner eye, pulsating and changing colours. At the age of 16 I approached other people about it and - surprise - not everyone perceives the world with a snow-like flickering. This ignited my search for an explanation. Years passed, and as soon as I had the idea to compare the flickering with the snow of an analog TV, I found the term “visual snow”.

With a name for my visual phenomena, I was able to connect with other people affected, and learned that VS is different for everyone. However, a common advice for new members in social media groups is to "avoid stress" and to not concentrate on the symptoms, as this worsens the experience.

This rang a bell. For many, the onset of VSS is a very traumatic experience, making them feel anxious and powerless. I could empathize with them but in my own experience, VSS is nothing to be afraid of and that it is possible to ease the symptoms if you grow with them.

Today, I created a small survey about a possible relation between stress and VSS. Maybe my results can change the outcome for some people. This would mean the world to me. So if you want to help me with my thesis, please participate in my survey. Thank you very much and all the best!”
