I was just doing some search for my eye problem and got on to this site. hope this will help get rid of my anxiety of years.
My symptoms are same as visual snow (TV vision at nite and dots on light surface)..have done eye examination and almost all docs have concluded it as eye floaters. My questions are -
1. Is this a disease. Am I as able as others..because I feel low and depressive because of this
2. One doctor said problem is floaters however, he drew a diagram of eye with statement white
lesion found. What was that? although he said its ok need not worry.
3. Is neurological examination required? On visual snow site, I heard abt a term called persistent
aura. Does that require treatment ?
4. wat shd be my attitude towards those dots ... can they increase ?
Dots on light is usually not visual snow but seeing the blood cells cirulate around your macular in the capillaries. It's perfectly normal often called flying corpusules or a blue field phenomenon.
I have no personal experience with visual snow, I've never diagnosed it, I've never attended a medical lecture about it. It seems quite the in vogue diagnosis on a lot of eye and neurological related websites.
There should be little confusion about visual snow, floaters and flying corpusles as they really don't look that alike.
I will not comment on visual snow as I don't have first hand knowledge of it. Floaters and flying corpusles are not a disease.
