    Visual Snow

    NANOS 2024
    Comprehensive Ophthalmology, Neuro-Ophthalmology/Orbit

    In this clinical pearl, Dr. Clare Fraser discusses the visual snow phenomenon and explains steps the general ophthalmologist can take to rule out other possible causes before making a visual snow syndrome diagnosis, including taking a thorough patient history, performing visual tests, and using OCT imaging. If no underlying cause is found, referral is often not necessary. Techniques such as focusing on stress management and mental health or using tinted lenses can help to minimize symptoms.
