I'm 61 years old
I wear reading glasses

I will best describe what I am experiencing:

While looking at anything in low light or bright lights I see clearly, but in a radius on the very edge of the perimiter of what I am looking at I also see a half circle of something else.

There is no pain or discomfort but it is distracting.

I can best describe it as a bunch of odd shaped mirrors linked together in a half circle

or like pixcels on a tv screen linked together in a half circle.

This does not happen all the time, but when it starts is continues for a good hour. If I try to look directly at it, it moves with my vision and stays just within what I see at the perimiter.

Any ideas on what this might be, I am sitting at my comp hoping to receive comments and or ideas.
