Meet our #Warrioroftheweek, Keegan Kinniburghđź’™

Spotlight on: Keenan

Hi! My name is Keegan, and I have experienced visual snow since I was very young.

I can recall that at about the age of 4 or 5, I complained to my mom that I saw “TV static” everywhere. My mother casually dismissed it, perhaps thinking I had an overactive imagination.

But the problem persisted. For a while, the condition caused me intense distress; I kept wondering if there was something horribly wrong. When I developed the need for glasses, I began to ask the optometrists if they ever had patients complain of seeing “static.” The majority of them thought I was making it up or said that they had never heard of such a complaint.

Now, at the age of 25, I’ve learned to live with it for the most part. I do find myself jealous of others; I wonder what the sky looks like to people who don’t have visual snow? I still experience some distress when I really take notice of the snow or when I begin to see floaters, etc. But it’s just one day at a time. I hope one day I can look at the sky and not see static!
