What’s up with seeing spots and squiggles? When I look at a a plain surface, such as a white ceiling or a blue sky or a snowfield, I see little dots and squiggles. When I turn my eyes, the dots and squiggles go with them. This has been the case with me at least since I was a teenager. My girlfriend has seen them only twice, and she freaked both times.
Is this something I should worry about? Is this common? Does it have a name?
