Whenever I look at the sky, even if it’s cloudy, I get eye floaters. I also get them in the winter from snow glare. For some reason I don’t get them when looking at artificial light, like light bulbs. When I look at something darker they go away immediately. I have a theory that when I look at something bright my pupil contracts and that pulls the floaters closer to my line of sight. And when I look at something darker they go away because my pupil expands. Am I right or is it something else?
I think the floaters are there all the time, it is just that you don’t notice them except during very bright conditions. I experience exactly the same phenominom as you describe (except I can see them with artificial light too if it is bright enough). I had an eye test not too long ago where they put the drops in and scrutinize with the slit lamp and all that, and they didn’t act like it was any problem, so chances are you are OK too.
