    Called "eye floaters." They happen when bits of the vitreous (a clear gel between the lens and the retina) breaks loose and floats around, usually toward the more liquid part of the vitreous.

    Floaters, just some poo that floats around in your eye and are visible due to some defect, which is common with age.

    These are blind spots. Most of the time, you don`t see them, as one eye fills in the blind spots of the other, but if you are paying attention, you can see them. Squiggly lines are cause by blood vessels in your retina, and the dots (there shouldn`t be more than two of them) are caused by the hole in the retina where nerves leave the eye.

    Seen them for a very long time. Started after I abused contact lenses. Could be inside the eye, or on the surface in the layer of tear. I don`t see them unless I stare off into whiteness and look for them. Never bothered me, really.

    Oh squiggly line in my eye fluid. I see you lurking there on the peripheral of my vision.

    But when I try to look at you, you scurry away.

    Are you shy, squiggly line?

    Why only when I ignore you, do you return to the center of my eye?

    Oh, squiggly line, it`s alright, you are forgiven.

    its leftover genetic material from your formation in the womb. it floats in your viscous eye fluid behind the retina. you see them because they cause partial obstructions when looking at light.

    I always assumed it was little bits of fluff or something similar on the surface of the cornea.
    They always seem to gently `slide` downwards as if pulled by gravity on a surface that has friction.
    But some people are saying it is actually inside the eye itself?
    They seem to be affected by blinking for me, so I`m not sure they`re inside the eye itself.

    Seriously? No one really knows what this is? These are actually fine pieces of dust and debris on the surface of your eye directly in front of the pupil. As light enters the eye you see those dust particles the same as dirt on your windshield only much larger due to the distance between the surface of your eye being so close. I think the surface of your eye is as close to you as an object can be lol.

    THE INSIDE OF YOUR EYE IS FILLED WITH A LIQUID, SOMETIMES VERY MICROSCOPIC PARTICLES PASS THROUGH THE LIGHT COMING INTO YOUR EYE CREATE A SHADOW ON A BACK OF YOUR EYE, YOU THEN SEE THIS TRANSLATED AS SOMETHING `FLOATING` IN YOUR EYE SIGHT.

    FLOATERS ARE NOT HARMFUL, HOWEVER AN INCREASE IN FLOATERS MAY BE A SIGN OF A DETACHED RETINA OR WORSE. IF YOU HAVE NOTICED THAT MORE AND MORE DEBRIS/FLOATERS ARE INVADED YOUR VISION CONTACT YOUR OPTOMETRIST

    I was always told it was the remnants of an artery, that existed when you were still a fetus, that fed blood to your still-forming eye. Once your eye was formed, it dried up and broke apart, forever to float in your eye.

    You can see them best if you look into something with a very low backlight... like a telescope pointed at a dim light or something, helps them come into focus. I have a lot of those guys, they don`t just drift, they swirl around when I move my eye.
