    I am 14 and I have played video games an awful lot and still do, and I pretty much just do school and play video games, I have 2 other brothers aswell so That helps break up sessions because they enjoy video games as much as I do and we each get an hour turn, so I probably play about 3-4 hours a day, and I have recently started experiencing visual snow. I am just wondering if maybe I stopped It would go away

    Just wondering if you have tried stopping and if it helped. My son also plays a lot and has had constant VS over the past 2 months.

    Firstly, I am very sorry for never replying. Now with that aside, I don't believe there is a connection, however, it does seem like a likely theory, every thing on a computer screen is moving, there are always tiny pixels flickering and the concentration on those can cause eye strain, headaches and so forth. I really don't know what causes it, I'm certain it isn't the computers fault, as I would imagine that computer specialists would report cases of this quite often if they have to stare at one 8 hours a day. But I really can't say anything for certain, the beat advice I can give is to try to stay happy and wait for the scientists to figure it out.

    I don't think so, I am 13 and have had it since birth. I have just tried to ignore it and it has helped but it has never stopped. It has been consistent and I am herring more and more about people losing there vision and I am worried that If I don't get some cure soon that could be me. If anyone has a cure besides drugs please let me know.

    There are several different causes! I do know computer/tv/phone screens can exacerbate symptoms though!
  6. True. I think we should all try to reduce screen time by 2 hours for a week and see if there are any changes with VS.
