This Is The Real Reason You Get These Little Blobs Of Light In Your Vision

Have you ever seen those little blobs of light in your field of vision? If so, don't panic, because it can happen to anyone! They're called myodesopia, more commonly known as floaters. These reflections are accentuated when there is strong sunlight. 

The eye is composed of a "vitreous" humor which is a transparent, jelly-like substance that fills the majority of the eye. With age, this surface becomes susceptible to myodesopia, or floaters, those little specks of light in your field of vision.  The sun's light projects the shadow of these floaters onto the retina. This phenomenon is particularly common in short-sighted people. Be aware, if the presence of floaters becomes more intense then you should consult your optician or doctor.
