Hello everyone! My name is Anne, I'm 22 years old and I didn't imagine I would do this in my life, but I cannot stand it anymore. In the last years I experience chronic migraine that linked finally in the condition that I have now - Visual Snow syndrome.
"Visual snow syndrome causes a person to see numerous flickering tiny dots that fill the entire visual field in both eyes. People describe it as being similar to "snow or static" as used to be common in older television. Other symptoms may include migraines, drifting blobs of varying size and shape (floaters), or other visual effects such as glare, halos, starbursts, odd colors and shapes, or double vision (diplopia)."
Most of the people didn't hear about that, it's a rare condition. I wasn't diagnosed immediately because I couldn't find a neurologist that knows about it! I had all the tests, MRI, ophthalmological tests, but they couldn't find anything. After I talk with other people from Facebook groups I found out that is called Visual Snow and there is no treatment for that. I thought that I was going crazy. Now I suffer from depression and anxiety and in time I found out that this condition is somehow linked to my anxiety level. I also see a psychiatrist and I'm on clonazepam for almost 4 months and I have to admit that I feel better. But I'm still pretty scared, I've become antisocial because I cannot go out and have fun like a normal human, I cannot go out in the night because I can barely see something due to the lack of light.
Recently I found out about this glasses that could help with the symptoms of Visual Snow and I want to do everything that is possible to be the person that I was before that. I know it is impossible to see normal again, but I need to try, I need to get my confidence back and be able to live a life without being scared of what I see.
The glasses I found costs about 149$ and with prescription and transition they costs 450$.
