    Yes, visual snow is a serious eye problem if you do not treat it well. If you ignore it, your visual snow will become serious as time goes by. You need to use the eye drops with anti-inflammation to release your symptom. You could also use the warm compress by finding the clean cloth and hot water to release your visual snow. You should protect the eyes carefully which are the important parts for the whole body.

    Well, according to some experts, visual snow can go away in some degree. So we can say that visual snow can be ok in some cases. But on the other hand, I have to tell you that if you do not take it seriously, visual snow can also become more and more dangerous. First, you should know that visual snow will be like static in parts of or the whole of your visual field. Also, it can be any color but it usually consists of small, translucent dots whose flicker intensity varies from person to person. Chemical changes can just lead to visual snow. And when it occurs, some visual disturbances such as starbursts, increased afterimages, floaters, trails will be possible. So you need to be careful about it.

    Visual snow refers to the phenomenon of seeing thickly dotted bright spots when people are watching things, which is most distinct when people are looking at the skies at night or watching where the light has just been turned off. Visual snow is usually caused by overuse of eyes, excessive fatigue, high work and life pressure, malnutrition, and so on. In some cases people get slight symptom of visual snow, and as long as they take good rest and adequate sleep, and stay in a relaxed mood, then the visual snow will gradually disappear. Therefore, if you get visual snow, you should ensure good rest and sufficient sleep every day; eat more vegetables and fruits and dairy products that are good for your eyes, keep in a good mood and not be too worried or anxious. If your conditions are still serious, you should go to the doctor's for an eye examination and take correspondent treatments.
