You are trying to focus on something but are not able to do so, since you feel something is floating in your eyes. If the problem goes away by wiping your eyes, then the situation isn’t worrisome. However, if the problem persists and the situation becomes even worse, then it means you have certain floaters inside your eyes which should be removed at the earliest possible. It is worth-mentioning here that almost everyone has these eye floaters and they are generally harmless considering they move with the movement of the eye ball. In appearance, they are fuzzy and translucent bits. For some, they may appear or feel like dust particles, soot, spider or cobwebs, worms, dark streaks, or rings which may sometime float in your field of vision. If you think they worry you, then you can easily get rid of them.
