Blue field entoptic phenomenon - Causes

Hey guys, im kinda new to all this "posting" and "thread" stuff so obviously my concern if of high level. Anyways Like some people who will respond (I hope). You are all aware of The Blue Field Entoptic Phenomenon or BFEP. I have it, or atleast im pretty sure. I can see my white blood cells swirling in my vision (particularly bright surfaces, like th sky), yada yada. But im more concerned with what the causes are. I cant find anything accurate or relavant on the web so if you could help me out, ive heard stress levels, uhmm high blood pressure? but nothing good (unless those are the effects?). Also, im curious as to how severe this can get and IS, and can it go away. Like, can it cost blindness or is it like my floaters where i just have to ignore them. For most people i know we get concerned and like to keep this topic to ourselves because quite frankly when you blab to someone saying "omg white things swirling in my vision" they think your an idiot and ur talking nonsense. So if anyone could help me out, thanks.

I always hear this "phenomena" is "normal", yet I never experienced it until I started having eye problems.  Just an fyi.
