Visual snow/static vision
dgr921 posted:
Has anyone ever heard of a condition often referred to as visual snow? I've been experiencing it for years now and it hasn't yet ceased to be any less disturbing than days before. My sight is fine, I'm not near-sighted or far-sighted and have never needed glasses but covering my entire field of vision is what looks like tiny, clear particles of something constantly dancing around the objects in my field of vision. It resembles a television screen stuck on static but not as dense. Accompanying this phenomenon are tiny flashes of moving light (starbursts), floaters, persistent light images and occasional double vision as well as anxiety problems. This condition is constant and has been for the last four or five years. Everyday tasks that used to be a cinch are now difficult. It is hard for me to even read since concentrating on one particular part of my field of vision is challenging. I've done my own research and there is not much professional literature on the subject but I have found out that plenty of other people suffer from the condition. More on the subject at Any feedback is helpful, thank you.
