Scattered has the typical story regarding this type of "static vision".
In a dark room and with my "static vision" at its worse -- I was seeing bright pinwheels that spun against the walls (it very interesting to note the idea of form constants here --http://www.mouches-volantes.com/ is a good place to try to find the ideas of honeycomb-type, and various types of visual pseudohallucations; there are academic articles that have utilized very complex math to determine these visual form constants with a relationships to visual processing at the biological level). My pinwheels where so severe that they would actually form shapes and faces that spun around. Over the last 7 years, the static vision is no longer his severe, but it is a constant presence in my life. Like many have described, the best treatment is to begin to learn how to not concentrate on this disturbance (i.e. do not stare at blank walls). I do realize this can be hard at times -- imagine a 21 year-old spending hours staring at the ceiling seeing patterns and images of bright white static all over his vision. I should note that clonazepam has been reported to be effective in reducing this type of visual disturbance. This supports Dr. Abraham's theory of Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder of visual DISINHIBITION.
What is interesting is static vision in individuals who have never taken drugs. It is easier explained with someone who has taken a substance, and then we can pass along the idea, "Well, the drug has produced damage of type X on neuronal system Z, which affects Y,D,E and eventually results in static vision." One could argue that DP/DR (non-drug induced) is a stress, similar to the stress of a drug, and similar neurochemical changes could occur leading to those effects.
Sometimes static vision's severity is difficult to explain to people, as everyone can see static vision if they look hard enough. However, we understand that this is something that is very much heightened and out of the ordinary. At times, if can be extremely present and overwhelming, however it is not abnormal in the DP/DR group nor the HPPD group (actually, I do not know one individual with HPPD who will not describe significantly heightened static vision as one of their problems).
I would like to know how many individuals with non-drug induced DP/DR experience specific visual symptoms. This will likely be a next-stage internet research project -- a focus on the visual symptoms of these disorders.
All my best, (again, I am still getting to past e-mails. I have not forgotten anyone).
