I have a question for the other adults out there with strabismus. I have always seen the world through a certain visual snow like the static on an old TV screen. This sensation is particularly evident in dim light or when looking at a blank wall. If it's the middle of day in a visually complicated environment, I don't notice the snow. It's also present when I close my eyes. I never thought this unusual until I had a casual conversation with a friend a while ago. She doesn't see the snow - nor it turns out did most of the other people I then asked. So, I googled "snow in vision" on the web and, sure enough, found that others see this. You can look up "visual snow" on Wikipedia, and this website, http://www.migraine-aura.org/content/e27891/e27265/e42285/e42288/e5..., has some pretty good pictures of what I am describing. Visual snow may be connected to migraine auras, but, unlike migraine auras, the visual snow is always present and covers the entire visual field.
The only other person that I've found thus far who sees visual snow is also esotropic. So I wondered if there is a connection here between visual snow and esotropia? Do any of you see visual snow?
