Can any recovered sufferer reassure that the visual distortions go away, too?

So over the years I'ev had dp, I've done a lot of research on it, and it seems that some get dp/dr with various visual distortions, with them being things like afterimages, tracers, floaters, dots etc. Before I depersonalized, I didn't have any of those problems, except for some mild visual snow, that's it. I didn't even know what it felt like to have floaters, but once dp had set in, I started seeing afterimages and floaters rather quickly. Tracers showed up like a few years later, while I was still depersonalized.

I've read several accounts where recovered sufferers say that the visuals are usually the last one to go after dp/dr, but still -- since I'm in a really bad situation right now -- I could use reassurance from people have gone through it.



PS. I've had my eyes and brain checked several times, and they're all fine.

It gets better with time as you become more desensitized to it...

Its like any other DP symptom...the less you focus on it the less it becomes a problem...

Of course our morbidly obsessive brains keep us focusing on it because its distressing and upsetting...

Disturbing but not dangerous...Fades with time....Guaranteed!!! And its a very normal part of the DP condition...

I bet you never experience any visual problems when your totally distracted from the DP (thats if you can totally distract from the DP)

It gets better!
