string-like glowing object that lasts for 1~2 seconds

I am constantly seeing a string-like glowing object that lasts for 1~2 seconds. It does move slowly on its own. Sometimes it appears as a bright dot looking like a dead pixel in the computer but it also lasts for very short time.

I have found something quite similar which is called blue-field phenomenon. The difference is that it can be seen even when you are not looking at a bright/blue sky background.

Also, I am short sighted and have floaters for many years.
I have been checked a few months ago and he looked into my eyes and said they are normal.

Does anyone know the explanation for that?

Re: string-like glowing object that lasts for 1~2 seconds

I have a TON of floaters and SO many things with my eyes so I have gone to the eye doctor quite a bit over the years! Because I have so many things with floaters and flashes, I asked him one time why I get BLUE flashes and he said they can be any color or he said, sometimes you may even see a bright thing darting across your vision (he said he calls it a "spermlike" thing) - I get those, and sometimes they go slow... I also get the dot. Nothing to worry about.
