Visual Snow Initiative

Collaborate, Educate, and Cure

Visual Snow is a neurological condition that impacts an individual’s vision, hearing, and quality of life. It affects a patient’s vision 24/7. That means that there is no relief from it, even when they close their eyes. Our goal is to help those with Visual Snow live and enjoy their lives without fear. Together we will find a cure.

The Cure Of Understanding

Purpose

Why We Do It

The Visual Snow Initiative is an extension of The Visual Snow Conference held May 5th 2018 at UCSF. The Visual Snow Conference was established to shine a light on Visual Snow by raising awareness and understanding for those whose lives are directly affected by this condition.

Visual Snow sounds like it’s harmless, but it is not. It affects people of all ages, but mostly young people in their teens and 20’s. Their eyes are perfect but their world looks far different. Without warning or cause, people with Visual Snow see the world in an overlay of hundreds of tiny moving dots across their field of vision, as well as other disturbing images.

Nobody knows the cause. The images are a 24/7 battle with the eyes open or closed. Research indicates that Visual Snow is a neurological problem, meaning the problem originates in the brain, not the eyes. This would explain why eye tests come back normal for patients with Visual Snow and why it is so difficult for doctors to diagnose.

We need awareness and knowledge to replace unnecessary medical tests. Visual Snow can be traumatic and isolating. We are working on understanding the condition and finding a cure.

What we see in our world we often take for granted…those with Visual Snow cannot.
