black specks not floaters
Recently I've noticed tiny black specks in my vision - hundreds of them - from light to very dark black.  Predominently in my left eye.  I had RK done in both eyes 13 years ago of which my left eye was unsuccessful after two attempts.  I've had several infections in that eye as well.  The black specks do not float.  They stay in place and within same perspective of each other.  So they appear to be a stationary phenomenom.  My aunt and cousin on my father's side both suffered from some sort of blindness but I am not sure what it was - possibly macular degeneration.  
Should I be worried about these black specks?

I have no answer for this because I am not a doctor but any changes in vision such as your specks and family history of blindness should immediately be a trip to the eye doctor/Ophthalmologist/retinal specialist.

Your symptoms do not suggest macular degeneration. One possiblity is entopic phenomena. use the search feature and archives to read about.

I would suggest an exam by a Eye MD ophthalmologist perhaps a retina specialist. Find one near you at www.aao.org
