Weird circles in vision

Hello Doctor, I recently noticed that when I'm in the outside light and when I look somewhere, I see light gray circles moving and changing fast. It is difficult to describe. I only have it in the outside light. Otherwise, I see well, I was on a dilated eye examination in January and everything was fine except for astigmatism. I don't even know how long I have it, I basically see it mainly when I focus on it or when I think about it, or more often when I stare at something. It's a weird. What could it be? It's not Floaters, this is bigger. Thank you. Male, 20yo.

Read the section in Wikipedia on entoptic phenomena,  read carefully the Blue Field Entopic phenomena  LINK  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_field_entoptic_phenomenon  That would be the most common cause and many many posts here about people noticing the same.

Thank you for your reply. They just aren't dots or floaters. What I am describing are much larger circles. Also not related to eye movement. I have no idea what it could be.
Did you see an Eye MD ophthalmologist for you dilated exam? If you saw non-MD optometrist, see eye MD ophthalmologist. If did see Eye MD and troubles you see a retina specialist Eye MD ophthalmologist.
My dilated eye exam was done by the Eye MD ophthalmologist with over 20 years of experience. (In the country where I live, an optometrist cannot do a dilated exam.) Since I only see it in specific situations, can it be related to the cardiovascular system or something else? I don't have any heart problems, I'm just guessing if it can be something else than eye problem. Thanks.
Rarely, most are related to the eyes, the visual pathway or the brain.
