Hi,
I have "visual snow". It is most apparent indoors where it is dimmer. I describes it to the opthamologist like this: It is as if I was staring at a TV screen full of static and then when I look away, I can still see the after image. It is like a zillion transparent white dots. It makes it diificult to read--especially black print on white paper. For instance, if I am looking at a tiny letter "O", it appears that the inside part isn't a uniform white color. It is almost like all the letters are outlined (not necessarily doubled). When I look at any flat objects (light or dark colored) like a wall, it is not a uniform color. It is grainy like a picture with a lousy dot pitch. If I am looking at something 10 feet away, the visual snow appear somewhere in between my eyes and the object. It is both eyes that are effected. I see the static when I close my eyes also. Maybe this is normal vision!?
Does this sound like anything other people are experiencing? The opthamolgist did a thorough examination and did not find anything wrong. He said it was probably due to astigmatism and that it would probably improve with glasses. I am also nearsighted. I go the the optometrist on Halloween and plan to mention my "static" problem.
Sincerely,

Julie
