Since I was a kid i was interested in bright lights they never hurt my eyes to look straight at them such as the sun or any other light. Since about 8 y.o. to current i had better then 20/20 vision. My latest was 16/20. i am 23 now but ever since i was young i seen these weird spheres in light waves. The best way i can describe seeing them and what they look like is this: When I zone In to a bright light at night around the light i see waves emitting off the brightest part of the light, like on a hot summer day when you see the heat waves off the street, in those waves i see hundreds for orbs that look like the picture at the bottom that i made in paint (i suck at making pics sorry lol but this pic is pretty close to what i see), thus all the black and white circles in this pic should be perfect circles the thicknesses are about right tho and when i see them there all different sizes. Are these floaters? i don't see flashes or line or spiders webs like eye problem floaters suggest just hundreds of orb like or cell like nucleus circles. Also If I focus hard enough i can get the waves and spheres to hold in place for about 3-5secs thus i was able to memorize and draw them and then make them in pant. Is this serious? should i see a special eye doctor? i only see it in light waves tho no where else . When i showed this pic to a friend he said it look like a photon. Then he explained That it most likely isn't photons because they move at the speed of light I don't know what a photon looks like but i thought a science forum is my most likely bet to figure this out seeing that the best and smartest minds might be here. please Help! Am i crazy or can others see this?

You should see an eye doctor. It is possible you are seeing the effects of damage.

The answer is, of course, we have no way of knowing anything about your eyes, so please see an eye doctor.

I think everyone sees what you see at some time. I see the little round "cells' that you describe, they remind me of looking at cells under a microscope. I also have 'floaters" which is actual eye tissue that has broken off and is casting shadows on the retina. Sometimes this can be caused by a very serious condition - a retinal tear or detachment.
