I noticed about a year ago after taking mushrooms that there was visual snow over what I see, especially obvious at nighttime. I don't remember if it was always like that or began as a side effect to taking the mushrooms.

It still persists to this day and I'm concerned it will stay like this forever. This image is a fairly accurate representation of what it looks like for me. Is this effect a normal consequence of seeing in low light conditions, or is it more likely HPPD? Why hasn't my vision returned to normal yet?

A lil of both, although a "disorder" in the DSM can only be diagnosed if it's truly an impediment to your life, i.e. not being able to drive or read or shit. What you have is pretty standard as far as aftereffects go, as for why it's persited a year though I can't say. Although I think having residual visuals after a trip can sometimes lead to noticing all of the myriad ways our eyes mistake visual information on a day to day basis. So again, little bit of both.

I gained the ability to see rainbow halos around white lights after having a psychotic break on LSA. That trip was over a year ago but I can see them to this day.

Yeah I think so. Although I honestly don't remember how my vision was before the trip. It's not life threatening or impeding any tasks I need to do. But it is depressing. I feel like I fucked up my visual acuity, and for what? It would deter me from taking psychedelics if I knew this would persist. I've asked a few people if they see grain too, and they can't tell me. So I really don't know if this is a side-effect or I'm for the first time in my life noticing the limits to my visual acuity.

I always saw visual noise as far as I can remember. What amazes me is some people notice it only after doing psychedelics. I have always seen it, and while it's more apparent in darkness, it's also present on any large surface of single color of any brightness. Also it has not ever grown stronger even though I've tripped more than a few times on various psychedelics.

You probably already had visual snow, and didn't notice it until you did shrooms.

Visual snow, floaters and night hallucinations are incredibly common among people, but most people don't even know what they're looking at so they don't realise it's part of the normal vision "errors".

Ok, this best analog that comes to mind is perfect silence or darkness. Also quick preface, before consuming hallucinogens you should read into the nature of natural hallucinations. Such as, prisoners cinema, hypnagogia, high altitude radiation interaction, ganzfield effect, and various forms of sensory deprivisionally induced hallucinatory states. Not to mention falsely perceived patterns from schizoaffective disorders, now to shaman it up for you.
In perfect silence or darkness you notice nuanced effects of your concious state that are otherwise previously imperceptible. That is to say in true silence you begin to hear your heartbeat, bowels, blood pumping, and much more, hell maybe even the proposed high pitch sound individual cells supposedly make. People have said it is truly maddening, but the reason for this is because your brain is seeking input and stimulus, without it your body doesn't know if you're awake or asleep alive or dead. In short it fucks with your conciousness, and same thing for absolute darkness. Now on to conjecture land. Psychedelics make us aware of this process of information integration it would seem to me. I've experienced moments of darkness in brightly lit rooms and seen living rooms stretch further than the god damn gobi dessert just with substance playing tricks on me. That is to say if you are seeing what isn't there then likely its your brain unfiltering stimulus or making it up and jamming it through your regular concious filter. To do so it has to draw from the bits of info that ARE there or introduce ones that aren't. Either way individual photons are what are absorbed and bounced around to produced the biologically perceived effect of sight. So whether or not you think there was "snow" as we call it there is and they are called photons and bits of biologically percieved information. So where does that leave you? Apparently more aware of your daily data stream than you were before. Is that bad? Not unless it keeps you from living a normal life. Personally I have always seen it so don't worry, but do discontinue use if it worsens or persists, and if you must seek mystical states save up for a sensory dep tank. I have always wanted one but for
A: substance works fine for me AAAND
B: drugs plus water DO NOT MIX AND NEVER SHOULD
Thats just me though, and I hope my 2 cents is of value to you.

It's an incredibly simple concept which is why I don't understand how you people are always so wrong about it.

How is it there, in front of our eyes our entire lives but we, "just didn't notice?"

That doesn't make any sense.

Psychedelics obviously cause intense sober visual distortions and hallucinations from prolonged use.

Or are you saying people have "small amounts" of visual snow their entire lives, so little that it practically doesn't even exist? And then we suddenly notice it hardcore after tripping, even though it literally stays the same amount of visual snow?

Everybody makes it out to sound as if psychedelics aren't the direct cause of people having intense visual fuck ups after tripping a fuck ton.

Hppd is very real and it comss from ingesting hallucinogens.

Sentence and paragraph structure, friend.

The psychedelics are not increasing your sober awareness, causing you to percieve things that were always there, but not easily noticeable, the psychedlics are FUCKING with your vision. They are fucking with the way your brain filters information.

The external material cause of visual distortions (LIGHT) obviously existed prior to a person's hppd, but the hppd did not exist.

Never asserted that it wasn't real and that if you have it you should be open and honest with the limitations it imposes , and c'mon man semantics, really? Did everyone switch to mla format and I not get the memmo?
I appalogize for my grammatically incorrect format prior to this moment. All of that aside, if you have impaired low light vision don't do dangerous low light activities. It's as simple as if you have it you have and if you don't you don't. If you binge on anything or are particularly sensitive to it then you should expect negative side effects. Even if it is something that is relatively harmless. So any idiot would/should stop immediately and be realistic with their situation and act accordingly.

Tbh "visual snow" IMO has just been a phenomena where you notice properties of your vision that werent there before, particularly after taking psychedelics for the first few times, those are the sort of things youd be looking for, vision certainly isnt flawless, its mostly illusory, for example depth perception, and thus prone to "graphical bugs" so to speak

It's very easy to understand why most people don't notice the natural disturbances and normal hallucinations common in the human visual organs.

Because to most people, the only time they take the time to look at what they see... is when they take hallucinogenic/psychedelic drugs.

You can never really get rid of it, either you integrate the lessons from your trip and get used to it or you end up in the looney bin.

Well given enough time though you do have to appreciate the natural deterioration of out bodies. So, up to a point, you will reach baseline again but age might mimic the low llight sight deficiency so if one cannot differentiate its best to avoid it. Still though, my original point that in darkness(only darkness) if things look statickey thats got more to do with the human eye. Now if you see static all the fuckin time, then you're in trouble.

So did just one trip trigger it? Was it a heroic dose, combination of drugs, after a binge?
I wonder if semifrequent microdosing (1-3 times a month) increases the chances of that happening, as the trips aren't visual?

Tbh the thought of getting proper HPPD scares me a lot. But I can't stop taking acid either because I like to use it to make special occasions (amusement part, festivals etc) even better, and I'd like to be able to reboot my system with a more hefty mushroom/acid system every now and then when I feel like I might be in need of that. Same goes for weed. Smoke very infrequently, can live with out it, but it's still a nice thing to do every now and then - I get visuals from it, so it probably excarbates the issue as well.

Currently I've got some floaters in my eyes. They appear for maybe 20 seconds to a minute at a time, usually when staring at the sky or computer monitor. Maybe a few times a week occurence, seems like it happens more often after taking a micro/minidose of acid

THIS X1000000000000000000000. I'm not saying drug use can't trigger it or cause it but I think this is often the case.

I noticed it after I started reading about it. Smoked a lot of weed, done a little bit of dis but I started reading about this stuff after taking acid once. One time... I'm kinda doubtful one acid trip permanently fucked up my vision and if it did what are you gonna do? I've talked to an eye doctor about it, they aren't entirely sure why it happens and he never brought up drug use. It's a thing that happens to all sorts of people regardless of psychedelic drug use.

It used to bug the living fuck outta me. I gotta buddy who got REALLY pissed off about visual problems and stopped smoking weed. H still has it and has only taken shrooms 2 or 3 times and when he did smoke he was never heavy into it.

I have stated the same thing in this thread a million fuckin times, but a bunch of people refuse to accept there are things in life they have never noticed. The reality is that some reports state that people exposed to near perfect darkness, prolonged lack of sensory input otherwise, or certain types if mediation have all observed it. Some folks just refuse to admit they didn't have leopard level night vision or a simple lack if awareness before tripping. Although yes, hppd is real, and yes, if you have it or think you do behave accordingly. Otherwise I just wish to encourage people to keep an open mind while exploring the ineffable and unknown.

Hppd is an effect of tripping. The visual disturbances are not "always there." You don't just happen to notice them after tripping becoz, "Lol let me look harder at thing." They happen after tripping because the drugs fuck with your brain chemistry, causing visual hallucinations. The visual hallucinations are a direct result of the drug use.

It's not "suddenly paying more attention to your vision."

Some people in this thread are claiming that there are these visual disturbances for the entirety of your life, and that you just suddenly become aware of them for whatever reason, be it tripping, or focusing intently. Well whatever visual disturbances you guys have experienced must be not even the slightest bit as intense as what I've gone through where the counter top is bursting with fractals, the lines on the floor have rainbow hues swirling across them, lights dance and flash across my peripheral vision like shooting stars, and walking through a doorway the threshold follows me for half a second and then a rainbow colored web of veins flashes across my vision. That's most of the most intense effects of it. Rooms breathing, lights constantly flicker when other people say they aren't.

This. I'm very annoyed that people who support the use of psychedelic substances are not more vocal about the (not rare) potential of developing HPPD or other long-term consequences. I want to see this stressed on the primary page on a website explaining about the substance and inviting you to do it. It's not nothing. And to see the scrabbling attempts at trying to wipe it away like it's a minor consequence or not a problem, really annoys me. Will drug advocates online take more responsibility for the pain and suffering they cause. I feel like I was duped.

That said, I'd like to move this onto serious suggestions as to how to judge whether people have visual snow before and after a psychedelic experience.

I'm pretty sure that's bullshit and/or people that already abuse other drugs doing psychedelics a few times.

There's no scientific indication that taking shrooms or LSD once or twice puts you at risk of HPPD. No one has any clue of what kind of mechanic would be behind that.

If someone sees some freaky shit from doing shrooms twice, they probably don't have HPPD. They're just genetically predisposed to being schizophrenic.

Its not really at all understood. Not just psychedelics but our sense in general. For fucks sake what we/you perceive as reality is just the human biological interpretation of generally perceptible physically interpreted input during nominal operational conditions.
Everything is your brain and as far as senses go the only one you posses(hopefully) that has its own specific brainy bit is your sense of smell.
Personally visual snow has been ever present in my life, since childhood really. I always thought it was my imagination but now I know that its really just my brain filling in the gaps present when it lacks the ability to gather image related sensory data(i.e. low light conditions). It is what it is man.

Meant to illustrate that if both parties thinking is sound then the truth of the situation likely lies somewhere in between two of you.
My keyboard situation is kinda fucked and that was supposed to be in there near the end :/

I see people make the same dumb argument on the other chan. The idea that I'm not to expect a thoughtful response because "what do you expect". The culture is shaped by the users. And you're one of them, so be the change you want to see. You are deciding that you're not going to give me a good answer because of the established culture but that doesn't mean you're bound to give me a bad answer.

You're Australian? Who gives a fuck. I sure don't. How is that info relevant? Are you dissing yourself?

I'm not the Australian and that is damn near the exact same thing I was pointing out to him.
For the record I always supply answers to the best of my ability with the available information. Said information happens to be pretty much all information ever learned ever when people willing to search for credible sources act accordingly. The simple point was look up whats been said to you then determine whether or not you wish to continue flinging verbal shit. If you have something legitimate to contribute then contribute away and discuss the source materials in an intelligent way.
Having to explain the process of discussion itself really cheapens the experience.

Dude holy shit people in this thread are retarded niggers.

Being sober and seeing giant rainbow fractals burst across your vision is not a "vivid imagination," you dumb kikes. Holy fuck.

You guys are idiots.

Giant rainbow fractals aren't visual noise or visual snow.

Visual snow is just a normal hallucination incredibly common in normal sober people.

If you're seeing that kind of shit then hppd is the least of your concerns. That sounds more like a psychotic break in progress. Obvious hppd is obvious, the originally asked question was about visual snow/static vs hppd. Honestly I am past explain how our eyes interact with photons. You can keep your closed minded bigotry to yourself too, go back to 4chin.

You're prepared to diagnose someone as suffering from psychosis from seeing rainbow fractals after a psychedelic experience and not HPPD? I'm starting to believe some drug enthusiasts are prepared to do anything to defend their right to trip. You shameless bastard. You wouldn't dare say these things to another person in real life. This is serious stuff we're talking about here, so happily contain yourself to one of the many other threads or make one yourself.

The thread already contains a pretty good visual representation of HPPD.

HPPD isn't like some Hollywoodian "acid flashback" you hear in urban legends. It's just like someone activated some photoshop filters in your eyeballs. Compared to actual hallucinogenic vision, HPPD is a load of weak goat piss. HPPD isn't some WOW IN YOUR FACE free trip.

There is simple criteria for diagnosing hppd. No i wouldn't tell someone who's having a psychotic break that, it is literally exactly what you AREN'T supposed to do. I would tell someone who's half lucid "GO TO THE DOCTOR YOU FUCKING IDIOT!" as I have on here several times before. So yes if its even a LITTLE serious consult a health care profession you raging retarded fucking faggot. I do talk to people like this in "real life", or in person as I put it since I'm not a nine year old. I get away with it because I use facts, logic, and my large size if all else fails.
