Visual Snow Syndrome

visual snowDo you suffer from a persistent sensation of flickering dots or “TV static” in your vision?

If so, then you may be experiencing a rare neurological condition referred to as Visual Snow Syndrome (VSS). It is often present in patients who have a history of traumatic brain injury, anxiety, or depression and can be debilitating in one’s day-to-day life. The medical community at large is still learning about visual snow; there is no definite known cause, nor is there a treatment that works for every patient.

However, there remains hope: some patients are able to experience relief or even resolution of their symptoms with neuro-optometric treatment. Both Drs. Margolis and DeStefano are highly familiar with VSS and are trained in all available neuro-optometric treatments for VSS.

In addition, both doctors have been able to relieve or cure VSS symptoms in some of their patients.

If you suffer from VSS, then contact Visual Symptoms Treatment Center for a new patient examination. Drs. Margolis and DeStefano will be happy to discuss your case and develop a personalized treatment plan that may include specialty lenses, prisms, light therapy (known as syntonic phototherapy), and/or active vision therapy.
