Spotlight on: Jese Navaranjan 💕 @jesenav

“My name is Jese and I have spoken of Visual Snow ever since I was about 6 years old. I remember as a child, being passed from optician to the doctor and then back to the opticians again. At some point, I gave up and believed everyone saw this way.

It was only earlier this year, that my symptoms started to get worse, and I was officially diagnosed. For the first time in my life, I could finally put a name on my condition, which was a huge relief! Visual Snow is a constant in my life. It never goes away and it’s especially difficult in low lighting and when I close my eyes. Static everywhere! I also suffer from Tinnitus, photosensitivity, migraines and disassociation. It’s hard having a condition that has no treatment, and most days my only help is distraction. I hope my story makes you feel like you are not alone and to spread awareness.

I work at a computer all day, and I can find that it can be very difficult with screens. I usually make sure to take breaks and go outside frequently as the outside light can be helpful. I also started using glasses that block blue light at night time. I also make sure my devices have a low light setting to help with the sensitivity. I have been researching about posture and effect on visual snow, so I do neck and back exercises regularly and have seen a chiropractor, as I believe there is a link. I meditate and take time out when I get anxious about VS.”
