Visual Snow: Anyone experience this?

There is a condition called asteroid hyalosis which causes opaque floating particles in the vitreous, or “jelly” of the eye. These can cause some problems with vision if they are dense enough. I don’t think anyone would do surgery for this in a 12 year old. It’s basically like snow floating through the fluid. No other problems with it. I also am not familiar with the doctor’s from UCSF and recently worked in ophthalmology there. They may just be researchers
