Meet the Researchers

Working together to develop solutions, the Visual Snow Initiative (VSI) collaborates with worldwide Visual Snow Syndrome experts and connects them with one another in order to maximize global research efforts.

Our Global Research Team consists of physicians, scientists, and researchers from around the world who are dedicated to studying Visual Snow Syndrome and finding a cure. Their areas of exploration include symptomatology, pathophysiology, brain network mechanisms, neurotransmitters, biomarkers, and treatments. Their fields of expertise include neurology, neuro-ophthalmology, ophthalmology, optometry, neuroscience, neurobiology, and advanced technology.

Your generous tax-deductible donation to VSI goes directly to supporting our collective global research for Visual Snow Syndrome.
