National Eye Institute

They are known as "floaters" or "benign floaters" or "vitreous floaters": A blurry spot that seems to drift in front of the eyes but does not block vision. The blur is the result of debris from the vitreous of the eye casting a shadow on the retina.  We call them "Squiggly Lines"!  More information about "National Eye Institute" and floaters below.
