MORE PATIENTS NEEDED FOR VISUAL SNOW STUDY
Just got off a very promising call with Dr. Schankin and Dr. Goadsby on the VS study. The patient testing has gone very well, but they are looking for more patients to be tested with a specific subset of symptoms (must include visual snow). If not have not contacted Dr. Schankin to be interviewed, PLEASE, do so today.

Thank you so much. We need to keep sending more patients there way, so please take a few moments to email the doctors if you have not already had your phone interview.

DONATIONS NEEDED TO FUND PATIENT TESTING AT UCSF FOR VISUAL SNOW STUDY

I am very pleased to let you all know that patient testing is about to get underway at UCSF for visual snow. This is a huge step to finding out what is causing the condition, which will hopefully lead to a treatment in the future. The patients have already been selected to participate in this first part of the study. We still need your help though. We are in need of $20,000 to help fund this testing. Patients will undergo brain imaging (PET scans) in hopes to find differences between those with visual snow and the control group selected. Funds are needed immediately as to not delay any forward progress with UCSF. Donations can be made through the website by clicking "donate" on the home page of eyeonvision.org. We are a small community of sufferers, so we need all of your support at this time to provide UCSF with the funds needed to proceed.

?I would personally like to thank everyone who participated in the? phone interviews with Dr. Schankin. Without everyone being so willing to get on board, there wouldn't be a study at all, so thank you.?


 
Visual Snow Study Needs Particpants for Phone Interview

I am so pleased to tell you that we have received the approval to start a new study into Visual Snow through The University of California, San Francisco Headache Center. . The Eye On Vision Foundation has worked very hard the past few years to get another study off the ground, and I could not be happier that we have finally succeeded. What does this mean for you, as a VS patient? We need your participation in a simple 30 minute phone interview with one of the lead doctor from the study.?

Dr. Goadsby and Dr. Schankin from UCSF are 100% committed to this research, and are very motivated to help find the cause and hopefully a treatment plan.
