Eye worm is not a scientifically correct term. The things I want to pin down are those worm like shapes, floating in your field of view when unfocused. When you try to focus them, they move away. One explanation, I once heard is, that those are dust particles floating on the lens. But I am absolutely sure, that this can not be true, due to the fact, that I own one "eye worm" which has accompanied me for over a year and has stayed in exactly the same shape (a Gaussian Bell Curve Shape with a knot in the middle) for the whole time period.
