Optical malady

In low light, inanimate objects seem to be moving. Also, looking at a
ceiling, I see oscillating thin, fibrous, strings. And when I hold my hand
at arms length, my fingers wiggle.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Eye Conditions group.

Welcome @paul1943, this sounds a little like oscillopsia. You might want to ask your doctor thought. I'm not an eye specialist.

Have you been to see an eye specialist? Do you also have issues with dizziness or balance?


I have an appointment to see a doctor.
When lying down, the room seems to spin. This last
for only a few seconds.
