    Welcome to the Forum, have a nice-stay



    One eye or both? - If you moved your eye did the object seem to follow the movement? - Your eye contains fluid, if something is floating around in that fluid close to the retina it appears in focus. It is not unusual. Either that or you have been penetrated by some nanobot which is about cut the cable from your eye to your brain....... (just in case you are under 21yrs old that last bit was a joke).

    I don't aim to give you concern...
    but it looks like a bug.

    Be more specific Fatoom, you state "on the surface," so does that mean you were examining your eye by reflection of a mirror? What were the conditions? I have always like to pause and investigate unusual visual phenomena and find an explanation, that is, I freeze in place and try to reposition myself to the particular conditions I observed an event.

    I also see extraneous small stuff as well, in Astronomy talk these are called floaters. For a single eye they are more apparant, and the use of both eyes results in some kind of cancellation of floaters.

    There are about 2 floaters I "recognize," that occured when I was young and focused sunlight using magnifying lenses. :P

    Also, for other posters, young children are able to focus their eyes well at short distances.

    That, and the fact there's no way the human eye, or any eye for that matter, is going to resolve anything on an atomic level.

    What you see is called a "cobweb" (or as previously mentioned, some kind of spider nanobot). If you see just the one, once, it's probably fine. However if you see them often or with flashes of light, then you need to see a doctor. It may be a symptom of something more serious. Again, if in doubt, see a doctor.

    I concur. The flashes of light the previous poster referred to can be due to the retina becoming detached, it can be fixed but [if you are seeing] flashes, you MUST seek help fast, failure will lead to blindness. This can be caused by an accident, sports injury or other blow to the head. If there are no flashes you are OK - for some years now I have experienced a similar thing I can describe as looking like a couple of sausages joined end-to-end with one end of the pair having a bunch of 'long hairs' rather like an artist's brush but much longer and splayed out. If you have any doubt seek medical help - The golden rule: If it don't look right it aint!

    Whoa...I also fell down when I saw your drawing...because I have a very similar problem. I see a simularly shaped distortion in my right eye. It moves when my eye moves, and although I think It's there all the time, I am only aware of it when I'm looking at a contrasting color...like my computer screen. It is very small...in my field of vision, it appears about half the size of an ant. It's been going on for a couple of years. I always though I had scratched my eye somehow and it didn't heal properly.. I also used to work in a tanning salon in my twenties, and thought it might be from tanning without goggles.

    I have something similar too, I think. I think it is an ondulation on the retina.
