? Palinopsia : Maybe mere after images but could reflect persistent image due to brain interaction. Hard for me to assess significance for you. Maybe best to get opinion of eye specialist

Probably vitreous floaters. These represent some degeneration in the vitreous of the eye a common and usually a benign condition.
