I noticed this on a random event and got pretty excited about it because it's quite beautiful and very interesting.
I was eating with my family when the light of a candle was starbursting me heavily. Suddenly I started to having strong visuals within the starburst itself. I thought it was floaters at first, but this was totally different, and the shapes were mathematically correct and a pattern was obvious to notice.
Today when the sun came out, it gave me a huge starburst and I gave this phenomena another try. By relaxing and having your eyes on the light in the starburst itself the pattern appears.
After some research I found out that what I'm seeing is my own photoreceptor cells. That is incredible and it's unlikely BFEF or floaters something that you can normally see, unless you got HPPD I guess.
Here are some pictures of photoreceptor cell cones which is the pattern I'm seeing within the starbursts:
I don't know what users that see geometrical patterns on walls and skies etc are seeing as I don't experience that. But could this be related?
Also, wouldn't neuro-opthamologists be interested in patients that can see their own photoreceptors? I can't find a single example online of a similar report.
If you do suffer from starbursts, please see within it and check if you also can see your photoreceptors.
This is going to sound quite bizarre, but in my field of vision, I can see, which I can best describe as static/noise/particles/energy etc wherever I look, but depending on what I like at, the stronger and more intense it is.. For example if I look at some reflective metal or a mirror, its not there at all.
Recently, I was looking at train tracks as the trains were nearing, and it was extremely intense, almost as if I could see the energy from it or something, I could still see the track perfectly clearly, it wasn't blurred or anything, but I saw 'energy' or coming from it.
Its not floaters as i've heard about that and I don't get flashes or see dark spots etc. I don't wear glasses, and have had my eyes tested when I was about 13 and it was all fine apparently. I don't do drugs and my vision is perfectly clear but if I really try, I can see this thing I have described. I've had this as early as I can remember but only recently i've been able to describe what I'm seeing.
