Visual Snow Syndrome ("VS") is a neurological condition that impacts an individual’s vision, hearing, and quality of life. The main symptom of VS is that people see the world in an overlay of hundreds of tiny moving dots across their field of vision, as well as other disturbing images. There are many other non-visual symptoms as well. VS affects a person's vision 24/7 — there is no relief from it, even when one closes their eyes. Unfortunately, there is not yet a treatment or cure for VS. Nobody knows the cause. Our goal is to help those with VS live and enjoy their lives without fear.  

The Visual Snow Foundation was founded by Davin Basi, 23, who has suffered from VS since the age of 12. The Visual Snow Foundation was set up in the UK to raise awareness of VS, primarily through its website, and raise funds for its research.  

VS is a global problem that has to date been largely ignored, and therefore requires a global solution. Hence we have decided to team up with The Visual Snow Initiative, a brilliant American charity that aims to increase awareness for VS, build a community for VS sufferers, and generate the capital for research.  

The Visual Snow Initiative  established and now administers the Visual Snow Global Research Fund ("Fund"). Donations that we receive will go into the Fund. The Fund is distributed to key research teams across the world as and when it is needed, particularly Professor Goadsby's team at the University of California San Francisco, Professor Fielding and Professor White's group at Monash University (Australia) and Doctor Pelak's team at the University of Colorado Denver.
