Thread: Should I be "looking" in a direction?

  1. Default Should I be "looking" in a direction?


    I just got my Sirius. I've used it for a few sessions and I have a question about proper use. I have found that depending on where I "look" with my eyes closed, I will become more or less aware of the flashing lights. If I actively "look" to the left, I notice the flashing much more than if I "look" to the center." Sometimes if I "look" up, I will also notice the flashing more. It's a little frustrating, because if I'm not "looking" at all, and just letting my eyes rest and fall where they will, the flashing effect can be reduced to the point where I barely notice it at all, and my vision becomes dark. Has anyone else had the experience I describe?

    Also, I know people have described seeing geometric shapes, patterns and other visual phenomena. So far, all I have experienced is flashing of the sort one would expect if a light were directed over their eyes while their eyes were closed. I have not discerned any other effects, shapes, patterns or the hallmarks of the brain trying to "make sense" of the light.

    Thanks for reading.

    I'm sure the experience is different for everyone. The first section of this thread talks a bit about it:

    Here's another person talking about the experience with the Sirius:

    This is a good general thread regarding AVS usage:

    Hopefully that information helps. Enjoy!
