Silver Spots in Visions
I have a history of floaters, which have been checked out as normal.
However, very occasionally (maybe once every few months), I also see silver squiggles when I look up quickly.  There are dozens of them, always concentrated at the top of my field of vision.
My Dr. lumped these in w/ the floaters, but they look different and appear under different circumstances, so I'm still concerned.

These silver squiggles are part of the normal working apparatus of your eye and visual symptom. Many people see these things and are either puzzled or concerned. They all fall under the catagorey of 'entoptic phenomena'. Use the search feature on this page and 'entopic phenomena' or 'entopic phenoma'. Also use Google or Yahoo search engine and the same terms. They even have pictures of what they look like.
