I can see my photoreceptors (geometrical pattern issue solved?)


Recommended Posts

I noticed this on a random event and got pretty excited about it because it's quite beautiful and very interesting.


I was eating with my family when the light of a candle was starbursting me heavily. Suddenly I started to having strong visuals within the starburst itself. I thought it was floaters at first, but this was totally different, and the shapes were mathematically correct and a pattern was obvious to notice.


Today when the sun came out, it gave me a huge starburst and I gave this phenomena another try. By relaxing and having your eyes on the light in the starburst itself the pattern appears.


After some research I found out that what I'm seeing is my own photoreceptor cells. That is incredible and it's unlikely BFEF or floaters something that you can normally see, unless you got HPPD I guess.


Here are some pictures of photoreceptor cell cones which is the pattern I'm seeing within the starbursts:






I don't know what users that see geometrical patterns on walls and skies etc are seeing as I don't experience that. But could this be related?


Also, wouldn't neuro-opthamologists be interested in patients that can see their own photoreceptors? I can't find a single example online of a similar report.


If you do suffer from starbursts, please see within it and check if you also can see your photoreceptors.
