Spotlight on: Braden Davis 💥

“Like many of you I developed Visual Snow Syndrome later in life. In my case it was after eye trauma last April. After almost 4 months of seeing doctors who were baffled at my symptoms, I Googled the words “Pixelated Vision” and realized that I had Visual Snow Syndrome, which was later confirmed by a neuropathologist. Today, I live a completely normal life, which a year ago I never thought was possible. Three things in particular had the biggest impact on making this change happen: 1) FL-41 tinted glasses from @axonoptics, 2) CareUEyes computer software that works as a blue light blocker and dimmer, and 3) a low dose of CBD, which drastically reduced my light sensitivity, floaters, and constant headaches. As an Urban Planner I work on the computer constantly and when I’m not at work I spend my weekends in the Florida sun. The ability to go to work and be outside headache free again has given me my life back. I truly believe that there will be a cure in the coming years. Stay positive, after all, seeing is believing!”

New Visual Snow Syndrome Study!

The VSI has been working with Dr. Tsang in California and Dr. Shidlofsky in Texas. Both doctors have been highly successful in reducing, and in some cases, eliminating symptoms of Visual Snow Syndrome in their patients. When we learned that their philosophies and methods were strikingly similar and effective, the VSI put them in contact with each other. They are now collaborating on an enhanced VSS protocol. They will be accepting new patients for this study.

Today, the VSI will be releasing a series of informational videos on our YouTube channel in which Dr. Tsang and Dr. Shidlofsky discuss their experience in treating VSS. The VSI will also post video testimonials from their patients. We are enthusiastic and optimistic to share Dr. Tsang’s and Dr. Shidlofsky’s insights with the VSS community. If you would like to make an appointment with either Dr. Tsang or Dr. Shidlofsky, their contact information will appear at the end of each video. Watch the videos here:

We recognize that the majority of people with VSS cannot travel to California or Texas to take part in this study. Therefore, once the study has concluded, Dr. Tsang and Dr. Shidlofsky have agreed to make a series of instructional videos that will show their step-by-step protocol, which can be done at home. They will offer suggestions and techniques that will allow the use of household items versus in-office medical equipment. The VSI will also make these videos available.

We would like to thank Dr. Tsang, Dr. Shidlofsky, Kelsey NaPier, and Michael Neustifter for their kind and generous contribution to the VSS community.
