Reading with VS (visual snow)

Reading with VS is extremely hard to do. Words seem to wave and jump off the page. They almost seem to glow off of the white background. I don't read for pleasure anymore. I read my children their story at night, and am grateful for the illustrations on the pages, which break up the jumble of words. Reading glasses do not help, nor are needed.

EOVF has raised $4664.80 since opening
I am please to say that we have raised $4664.80 since we opened the Eye on Vision Foundation. While this is a fantastic start, we have far to go.

Please keep the donations coming in, and don't forget to tell your friends and family about the website and the foundation!

Herbs don't work on floaters

When a person develops floaters, they first ask their doctor for a treatment. When a treatment is not offered (because there isn't one), the patient tends to surf the net for alternate treatments. I did the same myself, and please take my word on this. There is no herbor vitamin out there that is going to improve or eliminate your floaters. The following have been tried by many sufferers without the slightest improvement.
