'ethanlicious' view point on living with VS

The following was submitted by "ethanlicious" as a personal account on living with VS:

"VS is a very difficult condition for regular people to understand. Apart from depression, anxiety, and fatigue, VS is not apparent upon viewing a person. It is not like being wheelchair-bound, or missing a limb, or being autistic; yet despite appearance, it truly is a disability. And worse than other disabilities in some ways. People with VS do not get special privileges. They have to go to the same schools, work the same jobs, and lead the same life as everyone else, even though the simplest and barest of tasks are causes for great frustration and feelings of inadequacy. There is no magic pill they can take to level the playing field; they are always at a disadvantage. And that's not to mention the fact that many people, in the medical field or otherwise, believe VS to be a creation of hypochondria, or a diseased mind. They find it hard to believe that a simple, non-life threatening condition such as VS would cause such distress."

Living with Floaters

I plan on posting at least once a day on the site, so readers can get a good feel of what it is like to live with floaters and visual snow. Today I'm going to try to give you an idea of what it is like to see with a bad case of floaters. Imagine a dirty fishbowl which hasn't been cleaned in weeks. Now hold that up to the light, peer through the glass and look to the other side. That's what it is like to see with floaters.

Welcome to EyeOnVision.org

I am very please to officially announce the opening of EyeOnVision.org. This site has been two years in the making and I'm thrilled that it is out on the internet now. Not only do we strive to raise funds for medical research, but we also want to raise awareness for visual snow, vitreous floaters, and macular degeneration.

Many people do not know that floaters are not being researched anywhere in the world. Most expect when they develop eye floaters that there will be a pill or an eye drop that their doctor will give them, but unfortunately one doesn't exist.

99.9% of people haven't even heard of visual snow or PMA. They are shocked to learn that people actually see static infront of their eyes 24/7 along with many other visual disturbances.

Although most people have heard of macular degeneration, they'll admit that they don't really know what it is. Learning that millions of people are going blind each year from it is an eye opening realization.

I hope that this site will both educate our readers, as well as inspire them to contribute and help find a cure for all of these conditions.
