    I believe I started noticing around age 9 or 10. I vaguely remember at some point having seen with clarity a clear blue sky when I was much younger, but I'm not certain. I'm currently 25.

    I was around 25 when I started to slowly develop symptoms but didn't know what it was until 28. I am 29 now. Good question!

    I had visual snow as long as I can remember and is mostly prominent in the dark or when I look at the sky. It's not severe, although because I've had it my whole life I don't know any different, and when I was young I assumed everyone saw what I was seeing. I am now 30

    I developed VS about 9 months ago and my first symptoms were sudden and developed increasingly over the next two months, I was 27 then, 28 now.

    You are the 1st person I've heard of who is like my son. He is 8 and has been telling us about his spots since he began to talk. Is also worst for him looking in the sky or in the dark he sleeps with the light on. I am very curious about the differences between children who recognized the spots and those who develop symptoms later in life.

    I'm not sure, it's been about as long as I can remember. I know there was a time when I didn't see like this, but I can't recall when.
    Doesn't help I don't remember anything before age 8
  10. As long as I can remember. Talked to a doctor about it in first or second grade. Thought I was over analyzing normal things that everyone sees and no one talks about -for 37 years.

    I'm pretty sure I've had it from a young age but I first started describing my symptoms at 14 and I'm now 21.

    I have had visual snow since I was around seven. It has gotten worse over the years. It's so nice to know I am not the only one who has this. I have never met a doctor or person who understood me. Although it's annoying, and I wish it would go away. I am thankful I am not blind.
