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.
