I SEE THESE ALL THE FUCKING TIME AND IT BUGS THE FUCK OUT OF ME.
IT EVEN DOES THE THING
Fun fact: These are apparently bacteria on your eye that you see when you’re focused enough, just like seeing them under a microscope!
And they said we couldn’t see microbes with the naked eye.
fun fact: these things (which are called floaters) aren’t bacteria or microbes at all! most often they are simply just parts of the collagen covering your eye (the “goo” on your eye is 99% collagen and 1% water). what happens is that when water is released, it liquifies the “goo”, and so the collagen in the goo breaks down into things called fibrils (which are the floaters/the things).
please refrain from making things up!
