I attributed it to the floaters making light disbuse differently. Then I started noticing that dark areas or dark rooms had a kind of white haze over them. It may have always partially been there, but this was more noticeable.
I think I'm starting to see visual snow, and it's freaking me the hell out. At work the white walls can look like they're pulsing or even liquid, as I see movement. I can't see actual grain like a tube tv, but it's like a reflective pulsing white haze.
If this progresses idk what I'll do. Vitrectomy won't even help with visual snow, so I'm very scared.

Right now most of the grain is very fine, but plentiful. It creates the illusion that the surface is moving or pulsing. I see those videos of people seeing it everywhere and on their kids' faces and it breaks my heart. I'm terrified this will progress and I'll get worse. I had such a panic attack this morning that I couldn't stop shaking and started throwing up. I had to take an Ativan to try and calm myself. It actually barely worked, and I never take them.

There's no fix for VS so I feel screwed no matter what. I'm terrified I'll end up seeing pixelized versions of my children.

I don't know, but I would rather have cataract surgery than those fuking floaters for the coming 30 years or so, knowing that floaters will only get worse.
My 63 years old uncle was short-sighted, he did a cataract surgery with one eye far, another short. It took him about 3 weeks to get used to how he focus on near and far-away objects. No glasses needed, no more astigmatism. He feels so happy about it.
I think life would be much easier to adjust the focus rather than living in hell full of floaters.
