For a while now, I've been irritated by what I could only really describe as static/"white noise" existing in my eyesight. I'm posting this here to
discover if it is
A) Common to everyone.
B) If not common to everyone, how to get rid of it.
It only takes a very short experiment to see if we are experiencing the same thing. Close your eyes, and if there is an uncountable number of small
specks that are impossible to focus on, giving the impression of movement akin to an analog TV without the signal, then you know what I'm talking
about. It's not just under such situations where they are present, however. Personally, I am aware of them when looking at anything. My monitor, the
walls of my room (pale green), my curtain (maroon), the clear blue sky, and even white objects. There's this sort of "static overlay" there, and it's
annoying me quite a lot.
If it's something everyone has and is just the brain compiling the data picked up by the retina, I guess I'll just have to deal with it. But if it's
not, I want to figure out how to fix it. (It makes it harder to pick up small details at a distance.)
This is, as far as I can tell, separate to various other visual phenomena, such as the "eye floaties" (or whatever the correct term for them is.) as
well as the odd, firefly-like things I see when I go outside and look at the sky. Perhaps it is due to looking at electronic monitors too much? I know
that sometimes when I go to bed, I have a this flickering impression, like a monitor's. Similar to this, but about two-three times as fast, and not as
"obvious". (It's like black-gray rather than black-white)
