Hi. I’m 15 and shortsited (-4.75 in both eyes). About 2 months ago now I had a sudden onset of really odd vision problems that are adding up, however, this particular question is about a specific one. After I started experiencing starbursts, haloes, flashes and floaters, I began to notice swirling white dots in the sky, which I later Googled and found to be what’s called “BFEP” (blue field entoptic phenomena). At first, it was only when looking at the sky, but for the past (about) 5 weeks I am starting to see it everywhere! And not only this but the second I look at the sky or any bright background, it’s all over the place. It almost looks quite scary really. There are about 60/70 swirling white dots that move very fast, and the wierdest thing is that it genuinely looks like they really are right in front of me. Does anyone have a possible explanation for this? I know that it is normal to see this occasionally when looking at something bright like the sky, but I have read that it is not to see it anywhere (the ground/ in a room etc) or so frequently (everyday.) Why is this happening!? Does this fit with my other symptoms? I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
