HAHA! I've had this same exact problem. The funny thing is, when I was young I use to think the exact same thing! 'Are those molecules I see?' I always thought they were. Sometimes they would float around subtly and sometimes they would be darting in every direction, almost too fast to recognize what direction they were going.
Something else that I notice now that I'm older is, I can see noise everywhere I look, especially with darker colored things. It's like looking at a high ISO digital photo and seeing all the noise, and how it reduces resolution. I suppose it is just the limitations of human eye sight. I've always wondered what it would be like to see so clearly that there is no noise at all. I'm sure most people never even notice there is noise in their eye sight. I don't know why I notice it.

And here it is I thought something was wrong with my vision. I see the white dots whizzing by when I look outside a glass window of mine (only when the sky is blue). Again, these things are zipping by very fast and I can never keep my eye on a specific one because there are too many of them.

When I was little, I "invented" a game where I would lie down in the dark and press my fingers into my eyes. After a few seconds, I would start to see colored geometric shapes spinning and forming in front of my vision. I would always marvel at how perfect the show would be. It would always go through the same stages - moving through fields of fantastic geometric shapes, and finally ending with a circuit like mosaic grid over a tan background, before it all faded out into faint static on black - with my eyes pounding. It's a wonder I'm not blind...
