It is a leader in research, education, and health information, making it accessible and understandable so readers can make the best possible decisions about their health.
From Cleveland Clinic:
Visual snow syndrome is a condition that causes you to see static. Some describe it as seeing things in a snow globe that has been shaken up. There are flickering dots throughout the field of vision. Additionally, the “snow” that you see may be colorful, black-and-white, transparent or may flash.
Many people have visual snow syndrome as a chronic condition. Many people may also have migraines and anxiety, but they are distinct processes.
