Bizarre visual disturbances since childbirth.
When I wake I see hundreds of small circles in perfect lines that get bigger join up with one an other and spin like a kaleidoscope it lasts for a minute - there is no colour to them I can still see. I also have constant visual snow and constant vertical ghosting. I have experienced all of this since giving birth 5 months ago... The spinning circles are new as only saw static circles before. Had a dilated eye exam which showed everything is healthy a CT showed healthy and an MRI for queried MS showed no lesions (this was a separate issue but they new about my visual problems)

You have certainly had a complete evaluation, but I would suggest a refraction (to see if the vertical ghosting is caused by need for prescription lenses), a visual field exam (to check your peripheral vision),  and a consultation with a neuro-ophthalmologist.
