Stories to Share?
Do you have a personal story about living with visual snow, macular degeneration or vitreous floaters? If so, we would love to post it on the site. You can email your story, along with a note giving permission to post to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Please let me know if you would like your name to be included in the post or if you would like to remain anonymous. Thank you very much.

Why wait until it's you?
I never understood why people like playing the odds with their quality of life? As our eyes age, floaters develop. It happens to everyone as their vitreous, the gel in the eye, begins to break down. Once someone gets a floater, they are usually very disturbed that there is not an eye drop or another treatment that can remove this annoyance for them. Why wait until it happens to you to? Let's be proactive and raise the funds that we need to fund the research for floaters. Trust me, once you get them, you will want them gone. A donation to the Eye on Vision Foundation is one step closer to ensuring the best sight possible as your eyes age.

3rd Annual Dinner was a Success!

We had our third annual dinner and auction last night and it was a success! We raised an additional $1570 on top of the already raised $2200. That brings our total up to $3770. That means that we have just $1230 to go to reach our goal of $5000. Donations are still coming in from supporters who were unable to attend last night. If you are able to lend your support, please make a donation through our website or mail your check to:

Dinner and Auction Tomorrow!

We are busy getting the house ready for tomorrow's event. It is hard to believe that this is the third event that we have had. Our goal for this year's event is $5000. So far we have raised $2200. We have $2800 more to go before 8 p.m. tomorrow night! Will we make it?

I'm going to take a new turn with this website. When it first started I wanted to offer a lot of facts and articles to really inform our readers. However, over the last year I have realized that there are really no articles out there on PMS, very little on floaters, and a few more on macular degeneration. I haven't been able to keep the website very up-to-date because of this.? Because of this, I've decided to start posting more personal accounts of what it is like to live with PMA and floaters. I'm also going to seek out individuals who suffer from AMD to let us know their own experiences.

?While I'm typing this, my floaters are driving me crazy across this white computer screen. It is one of the main reasons that I don't spend much time on the computer. Sure, I'll check in from time to time on Facebook, email friends, and surf the web a little, but those floaters drive me crazy every single second of my web time.?

Speaking of computers, I went to my usual weekly vision therapy session today. We were working with the "red/green" glasses and 3 dimensional figures. After about 5 minutes my doctor wanted me to switch the red lens from my left eye and put it on the right, and the green lens from my right and put it on my left. Easier said then done. Because of the PMA, I see both positive and negative after images. Well today my positive after images were geared up and after I took off the red/green glasses to switch the lenses, I realized that without the glasses, my left eye was still seeing everything red and my right eye everything green. So I walked around for the next 10 minutes thinking that I was living in Christmas town!

Dinner and Auction this Saturday Night
5 days and counting until the dinner and silent auction. I just finished putting the final touches on the auction items. This year we will have an elliptical trainer, DVD player, children's toys, women's accessories, gifts for him, baby items, house cleaning service, and much more!

Please come hungry as we will be having a BBQ dinner along with an open bar.

Invite your friends and family to attend too!

I really hope that you are able to come and support to Eye on Vision Foundation on Saturday night.

Eye on Vision Dinner and Silent Auction - October 10

Will you take on the challenge and help us raise $5,000 for the Eye on Vision Foundation?


It is hard to believe that it has been over 4 years now that I have been living with my constant visual anomalies. I see white blood cells, visual snow (static like interference), floaters, my own eyelashes, afterimages, PMA, double images, and many more visual disturbances.


I know that many of you see me daily and know I keep a pretty busy schedule. You may be surprised to know just how hard this condition is to live with on a daily basis. I don?t like to walk around complaining about it and bringing people down, but it is honestly something that affects every single moment of my life. I see all of these things on a constant basis, whether my eyes are open or closed. There is no getting away from it. My brain has lost the ability to filter out anything visual, so I am basically on visual overload 24 hours a day.


Today?s tough economic conditions have made it very difficult for the Eye on Vision Foundation to meet our goals without help from friends like you. I am extending an invitation to you to ask for your help in reaching our financial goals for 2009. This is the biggest fundraising event of the year for the Eye On Vision Foundation and will take place on Saturday, October 10th from 5 ? 8 p.m. at 14614 Josair Dr.


The evening will include a BBQ dinner, dessert, drinks (including an open bar), music and a silent auction.


A donation of $50 per adult is requested. Children are welcome to attend without an additional donation. All proceeds go directly to the Eye on Vision Foundation.


Space can be reserved by simply going to our website, and making your donation today ? http://www.EyeOnVision.org


I hope that you can be with us to lend your support for this cause that is very close to my heart. I understand that sometimes people have family obligations, travel, or other commitments, but I sincerely ask you, if there is any way possible for you to take this one evening and set is aside, I would be very grateful.


If you are unable to attend, a general donation is greatly appreciated to help us reach our goal. As always, all donations are tax-deductible.


In the beginning of this letter, I asked if you would be willing to help us raise $5000. That might have seemed like an unobtainable goal, but by having just 100 people join us on October 10th, we will reach our goal for the evening. ?Please extend this invitation to your friends and family. With a little community outreach, I know that we can work together to help the Eye On Vision Foundation. I chose to use the Evite system this year to make it as easy as possible to spread the word. You can invite your friends and family to attend with you, by simply adding them to the guest list.


Following your online donation please email me, Jen Ambrose, with the number of people attending for an accurate food and drink head count ? This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it


I am really looking forward to seeing you at the 3rd Annual Eye On Vision Foundation Dinner. I?m confident that it will be the best one yet!


With hope and charity,

Jen Ambrose


P.S. Earlier this year the Eye on Vision Foundation was able to fund a Phase I research project at USC on PMA. This was the first and only research of this kind to take place in the U.S. Unfortunately, we are unable to begin Phase II until more funds are secured. We are the sole funding source for this research, so every donation makes a huge difference in the life of so many people suffering with this condition.
