Entoptic phenomena
« Reply #1 on: July 15, 2011, 08:36:27 AM »
Q: Is there a name for this type of eye disorder? When I look at any solid color surface, I see what appears to be hundreds of squiggly, pulsating veins that are almost transparent. I don't even bother to look at a blue sky on a summer day, the sight is ruined because of all motion that is going on. I have had this for many years, but have learned to live with it.... but don't like it.
A: The general term for this is "entoptic phenomenon". Certain shades of blue enable the viewer to see the white blood cells as they travel through the retinal blood vessels in front of the seeing elements (rods and cones).
