    I feel the words is too bright for me,i even feel the words have something like faint light in the words. and that make me difficult to read.
    However, if the words's color is grey,i feel bettle than which the words is black.

    I am sad others experience this. It is very difficult to read books now because of how much static blurs the distinction between the letters and lines of words.
    "However, if the words's color is grey, i feel bettle than which the words is black." I also experience this. I notice that high contrast (white/black) is very difficult for me to read and understand. I have a screen shader on my computer which makes it easier to read because it makes the white light gray, and the black a darker gray. I think something about high contrast and how much light hurts our eyes may have something to do with how it is difficult for us to read and look at it. I do not know if anyone has researched it. But I think visual snow makes our eyes more sensitive to contrast.

    I have trouble reading. I can get through a few forum posts or a short article but I get worn out quickly. I used to read a 300-ish page book in a week before I had visual snow. Now, this is about as deep as I go.

    The visual snow is like electrical static with a steady frequency of random disruption. When I look at text to read, I can focus in on exactly what I'm looking at and understand it. The problem is that the static all around what I'm looking at plays tricks with the peripheral text. It is very distracting and causes periodic derailment of the reading process. All that activity within the visual field also promotes mental fatigue and headache. With physical media, I noticed that holding an index card up against the current text line helps a little. This led me to cutting out an appropriately sized viewing window and using it to trace along lines, essentially restricting the mess of text in my visual field to just a few words at a time. That helped but was awkward to implement and maintain. At least for now, I just don't read books anymore.

    This thread is old but I found it. I hope that adding my experience to it helps somebody else down the road.
