    This has been happening for some months now. Dont know if its related to stress in anyway.
    The best way to describe would be i sometimes see transparent sperm or tadpole like things pulsing through my eyes. Kind of like what electrical or neuron pulses are visualized nowadays. Similar to a heart rate monitor but it happens all over the vision and follow a haphazard path like a network of blood vessels(or neurons)
    Does not happen all the time but happens when i suddenly wake up and i can feel my heart beating in my throat.

    As you know i already wear spectacles.

    Any one has any idea what this might be?

    Yes see a doctor. That being said, I have experienced similar symptoms on occasions all my life.

    I forgot to add that this happens when i suddenly wake up or am exhausted and can feel the my pulse in my neck.

    I dont think its related to eyesight as i may wear spectacles but i have really good low light vision.

    Floaters? I've had them for as long as I can remember. If I look at a solid color like a white wall, or the blue sky, I see them BAD.

    The only other thing I can think of is sometimes I will get white squiggles and flash like you're describing, usually only around the edges of my vision. Those are a precursor to a migraine.

    Either way you should probably see an eye doctor.

    Maybe it's an ocular migraine. I used to get those or at least something like it after I went years without wearing glasses. I just put them on and it eased away, which was weird but whatever I'll take it.

    If you're getting sperm in your eyes, tell your bf to just cum in your ass instead.

    These?


    Usually (98%) is caused by natural changes and ageing (harmless), but there are a ton of other possible causes which are not harmless. See a doctor, but don't give yourself an ulcer worrying about it until they tell you to worry.

    No, they don't. They're inside your eye. Nice try though.

    If not floaters, then JC is probably right and it's an Aura

    No, I think DDD is referring to neither of what you suggest. I have them as well.

    That could be pressure spikes from your coughing fit too, but obviously I'm just guessing blind. Not an MD by any stretch. Oxygen deprivation is probably the more likely of the two hypotheses.

    Auras are a neurological symptom. Basically, your brain is malfunctioning (but we already knew that, didn't we).

    It could be that your smoking has altered your neurochemical balance enough to cause some funkyness (maybe you're unusually sensitive to nicotine? In which case, have fun quitting).

    Us speculating in the blind really serves no purpose though. Go see a doctor and hopefully have him tell you that you're fine quit whining (you know, as opposed to brain tumor or nerve damage or impending stroke or something)

    The fireflies are in a way not floaters (because they aren't neurological, they are physical). Fireflies happen under specific lighting conditions where you can actually see your own blood vessels within your eyeball, more specifically blood flowing through them (yeah, those fireflies are actually rays of light passing through your eyeball veins). It's harmless phenomenon that may freak you out when you first see them, but it's harmless because you're just observing your very own eye internals ;)

    thanks they are rarer now. apparently the blood veins in our eyes are ON the retina not under it. Very poor R&D from the Evolutionary Dept.
