Vitreous floater: You most probably have a vitreous floater. The clear gel that fills eyeball is normally attached to all parts of the inside of the eye. As we get older it can become more liquid (watery) and detaches from the back of the retina causing your "dirt" floater. This can also reult in a retinal tear or detachment you should see your eye doctor to check the retina for this or hemorrhage (blood).
