The fuzzy things you see, “swimming sperm”, is a normal phenomenon called “the blue field effect”. The dots are white blood cells in the capillaries in front of the retina of the eye, near the macula. They don’t absorb light so it shines right thru them. Pretty strange. The sparkles could be a few things. Severe cases are caused by retina detachment. This would be like a firestorm of sparkles. The inner eye has no nerve(s) so it needs a way to tell you something
