Eat healthy, talk to people with the condition and educate yourself so you can know what to expect. Visual snow often gets worse as you age. This is not true for all people though.

You probably think there is something critically wrong with you, it is most likely that you are not. Your brain is just messing with your vision in a very unpleasant way. Go see an eye doctor to alleviate your worries, and do your best to keep living. Each day gets easier, and you'll have your good days and your bad. Don't let this symptom from keeping you happy.

I have been to multiple Drs. who had never heard of Visual Snow so if you find a Dr. that knows about Visual Snow - keep that Dr. Also try to take note of what types of lighting and situations make your symptoms worsen. Also, try to find a facebook group or another way to connect to those who are also suffering from Visual Snow.

Tell them they are not alone and everything will be ok.

It's part of you now, it's not going to kill you. Just don't go sitting in a white room without distraction just to see if it suddenly dissappear, won't happen. If you got it from medication, try finding out when it happened, if you can fix it. If you got it from birth, you probably don't have the stuff in your brain that everyone has. I'm autistic so I'm sure I got some brainstuff going on.

Try to use distractions and not focus on your symptoms. Doing so will only increase anxiety and therefore increase visual snow symptoms
