Vision Problem - Moving "pixels" in my field of vision

I am a 23 year old woman and i have a problem that my ophthalmologist can not find.

It started when i was very young, but recently (3-4 months ago) it started to become worse. I see a permanent set of very small transparent particles which are very similar to the ones that interfere in the old TV, only a few times smaller (as pixels, very tiny as molecules). Those particles are always moving, like if the air was moving.

They take all of my field of vision, it seems that there are in millions and perhaps more...

And, interestingly, even with closed eyes, I can still see them.

It never stops. I see them less only when the light is strong.

I was consulted by 2 different ophthalmologists, they did some exams, but according to them i do not have any problem with my eyes. They can not understand my problem or find any ophthalmologic issues with my vision.

Except that, i am in good general health, but this is really starting to become very annoying.

Do you have any idea what it might be or what type of specialist (like a neurologist maybe) should i visit?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Re: Vision Problem - Moving "pixels" in my field of vision

It sounds like you do need to see a neurologist or a neuro-ophthalmologist. The fact that you still see this phenomenon in the dark indicates that it is not related to light entering the eye. You are not seeing floaters because, if you turn out the lights, they are still there. It therefore has to be due to some other form of nerve stimulus. There are several possible reasons for that to happen and there are quite a few tests that a neurologist can perform in order to make a diagnosis.

Do a search for "visual snow" and you'll find other people who have the same problem.

Listen to KeelaC she seems very knowledgable. I also have a pixel missing problem but it is after vitrectomy, cataract and scar tissue scrape, with high myopia so I understand it, but you need to go to specialist or a University hopsital in your area, dont delay.
