Inside the eye is a watery jelly like fluid called Vitreous. Tiny specks swirl in the vitreous as the eye moves. Myopic people notice them more, and they are more common with age. If you suddenly notice a large increase in floaters or you start to notice any flashes of light, or a shadow across your vision, you should have your vision assessed as soon as possible as it may indicate a more serious problem such as detached retina.
