Hi Northerndarlene,

I see the sparks,fireflies, or floaters which I believe they call them.I have not had the TV like snow vision but have Blackouts ( not fainting but loss of vision). All of these occur at anytime night or day and can happen looking in any direction. I too have seen an eye Doctor to rule out problems associated with my dizziness,migraines, etc and was told all was good except I have dry eyes and corneal erosions. I have not been prescribed or know of any known remedies for it. Good luck.......anyone else know?

Besides floaters I have occasionally seen pinpricks of very bright light for very short periods. My eye doctor sees no problems and was puzzled by this symptom a couple of yrs ago when I described it. I have chalked it up to POTS and perhaps it is some form of migraine. It is very mild for me so I have not worried about it.

Hi,

I get what I call sparkles if I move my head quickly, when I have a low BP. To me its like seeing stars! I do get migraines but my migraine auras are completely different, they stay in the corner of my vision and are zig zag lines of blue green and red. The stars / sparkles are throughout my field of vision and only last a few seconds.

My migraine aura will last from 15-60 mins until the pain kicks in. These days however I dont seem to get the auras with migraines.....but I am very lucky as when I was a teenager I had them several times a week. Now its only once or twice a year.

Ive always seen floaters / bubbles in my vision even when I was a kid - I thought for a very long time that everyone had them!

As I say I know I tend to get these stars if I am sat up straight or stood up so I associate them with low BP. I don't get them when I am laying down or in a recliner.

I get visual snow but not from looking at a light background. I also have floaters, etc.

the snow seems to show up more when autonomic symptoms are prominent. I have tended to attribute them to migraines. I have reported them to docs but haven't gotten any answers.

I get a lot of different visuals. I get the snow at night occ. It usually happens after I've been asleep & wake up. Mine looks like white dots all over the ceiling & walls. It goes away after I've been awake for a few min. When I took Neurontin as a migraine preventive I didn't have it. I've never found out what causes it.

floaters now and then... but on a few occasions i have seen a grid that covers all surfaces--sometimes it is gray other

times white. i have only seen the grid upon waking and in dim light. it effects both eyes and last for several seconds.

generally, my vision is quite good--reading glasses... best to all, cordelia

I have visual snow 24/7, in the light, dark and even when my eyes are closed, which seems strange. I get the pinpricks of light when it's bright out, and I also see these small, translucent, bubble-like structures every day in certain lights. I see similar shadowy structures, too, almost like clusters of the bubbles. I also have afterimages that seem to stick around longer than normal.

The snow I've seen for as long as I can remember; when I was little, I used to think of it as tiny little bats in my room at night. The other visual disturbances developed later. I've been sent to various eye/brain specialists, and everything has checked out.

Unrelated, I think, are the vision blackouts I get, which I've always attributed to low or plummeting blood pressure.
