In brief: Retinal detachment
This could be due to detachment of the vitrous (jelly like substance in the eye) but it could also be an early warning of detachment of the retina.
You should see your ophthamologist (eye doctor) to make sure. Retinal detachment can be treated and blindness prevented if caught early enough.
