In early 2020, the Visual Snow Initiative (VSI) received an email from a person who had been successfully treated for their Visual Snow Syndrome (VSS). Although the VSI receives thousands of suggestions and “solutions” to the VSS mystery, we always follow-up and try to remain objective while investigating any and all claims.
This particular person further stated that their doctor, Dr. Terry Tsang, was able to reduce their VSS symptoms, which allowed them to return to the quality of life they had enjoyed prior to developing a debilitating case of VSS. Over the next several months, we followed up with Dr. Tsang, who shared her experience treating her VSS patients. We were also able to speak with several of her VSS patients, who told us of similar success in regaining their lives through Dr. Tsang’s treatments.
There was no doubt that she had developed a VSS treatment protocol that significantly improved VSS symptoms for many of her patients. At about the same time, the VSI learned about Dr. Charles Shidlofsky (Dr. S), who reportedly fully eliminated VSS static in a baseball player. We were, of course, skeptical. But as we did with Dr. Tsang, we followed-up with Dr. S and even had the opportunity to interview the baseball player. He confirmed to us that after seeing Dr. S, he no longer has VSS and is back to playing baseball.
What we found out is that Dr. Tsang and Dr. S had independently developed their respective treatments and, although they had never met, their methods for treating VSS patients were so coincidently similar that we thought perhaps they were on to something promising.
The VSI asked Dr. Tsang and Dr. S. whether they would be willing to collaborate on a VSS Study and they agreed. As a team, they created a VSS protocol with an independent system for evaluating and treating VSS patients. Since January 2021, they have been treating VSS patients as a part of the ongoing study with excellent results.
Their treatment is NOT a cure, and it has not worked for everyone; however, it has provided the majority of their VSS patients significant improvement in their quality of life, while reducing their VSS symptoms.
After the study concludes at the end of 2021, Dr. Tsang, and Dr. S plan to educate the VSS and medical community about their protocol and treatment. By year end, they will have optimized their treatment protocol so their findings can be shared worldwide through a VSI Medical Conference (t/b/a in-person or virtually), currently planned for 2022. Our shared goal is to help as many people as possible get their life back on track.
Dr. Tsang, Dr. S, and the VSI have received hundreds of inquiries asking to disclose their specific treatment. However, please understand that because VSS has so many visual and non-visual symptoms and varies from person-to-person, their treatment is customized for the individual patient and is not a standardized, one-size-fits-all method. We remain optimistic that their VSS treatment protocol will continue to yield positive results and be the first-ever effective treatment for VSS.
