I know what you are talking about, they are different than "floaters". Imagine a bunch of bright white light dots that sporadically move around very fast. They are not in your line of vision but rather a brain/eye thing going on.

If you hyperventilate and make yourself pass out, you will see them as well.

Don't be too sure coz I am


I'm tempted to go with the white blood cell theory.. But I haven't as yet managed to see the 'paths' that they are supposed to follow..They look totally random to me.. Maybe going in and out of focus tho?

They are always in a hurry though.. Poor little blighters.. I keep telling them to know..go with the flow..

Sound like fun..
Seriously though..You can see them when you yawn/stretch and you pump up your blood pressure around your head a little.Just a few though..Sparkly..Think I'll have one now..pretttty..

While floaters are the most commonly seen phenomena, what the OP is describing actually sounds a little more like Blue field entoptic phenomenon:

The blue field entoptic phenomenon or Scheerer's phenomenon is the appearance of tiny bright dots moving quickly along squiggly lines in the visual field, especially when looking into blue light (such as the sky). This is a normal effect that can be perceived by almost everybody. The dots are due to the white blood cells that move in the capillaries in front of the retina of the eye, near the macula.

Or possibly scintillations due to ophthalmic migraines (which are typically painless):

Guide to Ocular Migraines

Don't worry, you're not crazy (at least, not from that
). See a doctor if you think the symptoms are extreme or interfering with your well-being.

I do not see patterns either, they just swirl around.
It dont bothers me at all, I was just curious

For the longest time, I wonder what are floaters, and soon learn what they are.
Floaters are living organisms that lives on your eye, They may appear to look like little blood cells or a simple long lookin organism.

Do not CONFUSE this with "tiny energy dots swirling"

Its different to what you are talking about. Couple of weeks ago, I was staring into the bright blue sky observing everything that moves in the sky. Soon i was able to see these dots in the sky. The more I observe these dots moving, I soon can see some kind of swirling motion going around these dots. I still did not know what they are. now I read your post and I'm not the only one seeing it either. your description is very correct, I'm not good with describing things but I know it when i read about it.

People please do not make fun of people who experience another phenomenon.

I believe that everyone in the world is different in every way. Some of us are slow, some of us are fast. some people are natural in high awareness and some have no sense of awareness what so ever. Everyone take in information slower then others, while other are faster. Everyone grows up differently with different knowledge. Train your mind.

Meditation is key. It is a time for your self to relax and observe what ever flows. Changed my life.

If that was the case,simple eyewashes would clear these.
Also blinking would cause them to move.

"Floaters" generally refer to tiny amounts of blood leakage into the liquid INSIDE the eye.

Moving the eye up and down 'stirs up' the movement and gravity makes them 'float' down again.

I can see 'chains' of cells and clumps too,like looking at them under a microscope..
I went to an eye specialist because of my last job causing the minute bleeding into the eye and forming these shadows,clumps and chains..

Totally harmless unless they seem to increase noticeably which could mean continued bleeding into the eye..

If you have them.Get a check up anyway..
Better to be safe.

But the 'sparklies' are fun.. blue skies are always a welcome.

i used to not want to accept the white blood cell explanation. i was hoping that seeing the little sparks was something that could affirm my "specialness". unfortunately, if you follow this little test, you should be able to at least determine that the "sparks" are not outside of your biological entity.

get your heart pumping real heard (hold your breath or something). then look up and verify that the dots actually do pulse with your heartbeat.

sorry if this test makes anyone feel unspecial.

I've always wondered this... and if you squint your eyes you can also see transparent amoeba like objects just floating around.

Yeah I had those white "Tadpole "looking things in my field of vision all my life until one day a few years ago I actually took notice of them and so one day I just stared at them for about 45 minutes and they actually became more intense and frenetic to a point where I could actually see what looked like a magnetic wave resonating from the sky in a Purple and violet color.
My wife did the same thing but she said she could see further and she actually started seeing other world entities floating around and stuff like Angels and Spirit bodies etc.
She had me believing, because she has a personality of being a wise arse straight up women despite coming from a religious South India and she dosent care for any bull# or nonsense and is a natural sceptic at the best of times.

I can always see those . I also have sjogrens syndrome, that causes dry eye,

and I have corneal abrasions. Not only do I see those, I see my heart beat in my eye. It can get really annoying. Its worse when I wake up in the morning.

i see them too but only in natural light , mostly when i look at the sky, it is to me little pinpricks of light whizzing around like atoms, i have a couple of floaters and these are not them, the brighter the day the more and stronger they are. i cannot see them in artifical bright light, maybe i should get my eyes tested

I too have seen strange things in my vision while looking at pale backgrounds. The sky seems to be the most effective.
Floaters - objects in the vitrous humor that accumulate with age
Ameoba looking objects following an obvious track like blood vessels
And the sparkly, like the static on an old tv with no channel
I've reasoned the sparkly stuff to be a perception of the very cones and rods as they operate. One has a finite amount of said cones and rods that equates to a "screen resolution"

So, does that help? Being able to relax and see the mechanics of your physiology is a wonderfull thing. I'm gratified to express my thoughts on this matter because the few people I've brought subject up with had no idea what I was talking about. I quite enjoy the show.

You may have hallucinogen persisting perception disorder, this can be brought on by taking certain drugs, head wounds,blood pressure and dehydration.

I suffer from it due to two serioues head wounds and PTSD.

I have the exact same thing and I only noticed them about 2 months ago when I was looking up at the sky through the window and they look like little clear dots or bugs chacing each other really fast like a swarm of bees.

Maby they could be some sort of nano bots so big brother can see and record what our eyes see like they can listen to you through your cell phone even if it's switched off.

They're floaters. You need to get your eyes checked, because it could be a sign of something bad. I had floaters as a kid, and the doctor told me that it was due to a tear in my retina and if they didn't examine it when they did, I would have gone blind today.

i get them too. probably just little bacteria or something thats too close for the eye to focus on.

posted on Jun, 24 2008 @ 04:55 PM
i also get these not the floaters but the dots that look like sperms swimming around in my vision...... can anyone see them in the evening if they look at the sky as if you are watching a tv with not that great of reception
