Everyone has that.

Its probably just the receptors on your retina misfiring.  There are millions and millions of them, misfiring all the time.  Our receptors work on a law of averages, so we don't even notice those sorts of effects unless we are looking at nothing at all (blank backgrounds or shut eyelids).

Your problem is anxiety, not your eyes.  I think you know that.  That's why you posted here.

it's actually perfectly normal. it's an entoptic phenomenon known as Sheerer's phenomonon. go to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entoptic_phenomenon.

i have the same thing.  I also suffer from daily ocular migraines, but I get those glittery things too, and yes they are different than floaters, which don't bug me.  But yeah, the glittery things are way worse when outdoors, or if it snows. My eye Dr. just told me that it's one of those thigns that I have to learn to ignore...since there's nothing I can do about it and that this is fairly common and harmless.  So, I know how you feel!

I see black floaters all the time and they are so annoying.  Sometimes I think there is something flying past me and then realize it's just my eyes.

I also get those bright flashes, too.  Very annoying.

I have floaters in both eyes - big ones in the right eye.  They have not damaged my vision in any way.  They're more of a nuisance than anything.  they are harmless.

I have this too ! It's horrible looking at the sky. I have floaters too but I don't have anything wrong with my eyes according to the opticians it's not anything to worry about
