Answer

Thanks for your Question

 

 

These grey sports are called eye floaters and there are many causes of it and the most common cause is vitreous detachment or changes in vitreous gel inside the eye which is a benign condition and no treatment required and there are no complications. Other causes are uveitis, retinal detachment, retinal tears and vitreous hemorrhage.

I would recommend to visit your eye doctor for full eye examination and to rule out retinal tear or retinal detachment because you have a high myopia which is a risk factor for retinal detachment.
