Swirling lines that white before your eyes?

Hi, Im 6 months along now and I get these little white lines kind of like floaters, but these are different. Imagine a little thin white worm squiggling around. It comes and usually goes within a few minutes. Is this normal? has anyone ever experienced this?

Thanks J.

I have noticed that my eyes are producing a lot my fluid with this pregnancy and sometimes it is white and goopy. When I clean it out sometimes it is very stretchy and gets long and thin and I guess to go along with your description can look like a thin white worm. I'm not sure if that's the same thing you're experiencing but hopefully it helps.

Re: Swirling lines that white before your eyes?

i get floaters too. mine look like black strings and sometimes i see flashes of light too. the dr told me this was normal as long as my blood pressure wasnt high. i guess floaters and light flashes can be signs of preeclampsia but the majority of the time its just something that happens. when your pregnant you retain water and your tissues swell even though you may not look swollen, well it can also cause the corneas of your eyes to swell too and thats why this happens.
