Eye Floaters are some of figures you see floating in front of your eyes when you look forward in a clear blue sky, or you close your eyes and turn your face towards sun you will still see these floaters in reddish background. This means they are not in environment, they lies inside your eyes.
Eye floaters are found in viterous chamber of eye, formed as a result of degeneration of either retina or viterous humour. They appear as threads, spots, cobwebs floating around. When you fix your eyes at a stationary point, they will settle to the bottom of your eyes. Below on the video you can see how they look when you see on a clear sky.
What you see in eyes in form of floaters is actually the shadow of that suspended particle.
