    I had perfect eyesight until I got a neurological problem called visual snow.

    Moving static everywhere in my vision! I can't filter out floaters well so they are always darting about. I can see the white blood cells moving around in the capillaries in the back of my eye on bright surfaces because I can't filter those out well either. Starbursts are massive. Negative after imaging off any moderately bright object. Random black patches appear in my vision then go from time to time.

    No cure or treatment aside from sunglasses. The first major study was done in 2014 so it's a long way off from treatment. It's rare and not widely medically recognised.

    Life is so fun!

    My left eye is -7.75. My right eye is -8.25. Now thats two people.

    Funnily enough, i hate wearing glasses and contacts are not an option as i faint whenever i've tried wearing them. So i go outside without being able to see anything clearly at all. Not even my own feet.

    I only wear glasses in the classroom or at home.

    Football referees often have this, especially at Old Trafford. Not seeing a handball by a Man U player last Sunday, for example.
