Welcome to the VS Worldwide Project
The Visual Snow (VS) Worldwide Project features images of people and places from around the world. The aim is to demonstrate the diverse, global impact of Visual Snow Syndrome (VSS) and illustrate the significant contrast between life for those with VSS symptoms versus those without. Together, by sharing these images, we can raise awareness and create a world where individuals with VSS are better understood and supported.
Your World VS Our World
Many people with VSS have been misdiagnosed, marginalized, and/or misunderstood. This is often still the case, particularly in countries where awareness and education about the condition are low. We strive to change that through our efforts and in this case, visual comparisons of how the world is perceived by someone with VSS versus someone without VSS.
Making a Difference
Visual Snow Syndrome (VSS) encompasses visual disturbances, such as Visual Snow (seeing static/dynamic, snow-like dots), and non-visual symptoms. The visual symptoms of VSS can be difficult to describe in words. These images help illustrate the severity and degree of impact each symptom may have on someone with VSS.
Join the Movement
These images can be shared with friends, family, physicians, and/or the general public online or offline to increase awareness, knowledge, and understanding for VSS around the world. A variety of people and locations are included, but if you would like us to highlight a specific country, etc., please contact us to be featured.
