Flickering + transparent tiny things

I have a few strange things and the docs can't tell me what it is but I don't think it is normal.
For example I have those floaters. They are said to be normal and I also know how floaters look like.
But I also have something else which is really strange.
When I look at a very bright texture like for example a white paper or a white wall and it's very bright then I see transparent stuff but these are not floaters because I also see it when I do not move my eyes and floaters are only seen after moving your eyes because then they move, too. But I see this strange transparent stuff also without moving the eyes.
I don't know how to describe it but it looks a bit like sperm under a microscope.
This may sound stupid but that's the best way to describe it. I see many tiny small, transparent things which seem to be moving.
What is that? It's definitely not the floaters. :(

And something else which I also have is that my vision flickers. There are days where I notice it especially because it's stronger or more recognizable. For example when I look at a straight line or an object which is not moving then the edges of the object are flickering. I have been having this for years. I told it to an eye doctor and also to a neurologist but they all did their tests and found nothing.
But that cannot be normal.

  • I also have the same thing... Sometimes the buggy looking creatures have legs and sometimes they don't. They usually appear when I'm looking at something bright (for example...a blue sky.) I also have weird black outs in my vision for a few seconds at random times but they aren't really fequent. Weird... It's been happening for about half a year!? I think it started happening to me when I found out that I have dry eyes and I started using this lubricant eye ointment because the eye doctor told me to. Maybe the eye oinment or the dry eye thing is the cause?

  • I kind of have something similiar, but when I turn the lights out, they become colorful. The entire room is filled with little colorful moving dots, like a frying tv. With the lights on, they look clearer, and if I don't concentrate, I barely see them at all.

  • I have the same problem.....seems like am looking at swimming roundish bugs..they swim in random ways.I have this too - I've learned to ignore it, or at least try to. Bugs creep me out more than anything though, so it still bothers me, even though I know it's silly.
