Can be: The important thing is if you see this with your glasses on. With that. Strength of myopia why would you ever take you your gkasses off.

Not sure: Your symptoms could be from vitreous opacities floating in the fluid in the back of the eye. These are usually nothing more than an annoyance. It is important, however, for you to have your eyes examined to rule out any retinal problem, such as a detachment or tear.
