Spirochetes are usually much longer than they are wide, and often their width is below the resolving power of the light microscope. A Borrelia Burghdorferi spirochete may have a length of 10-30µm but a width of only 0.2-0.3µm. Therefore most spirochetes cannot be viewed using conventional light microscopy. Dark-field microscopy must be used to view spirochetes. Dark field microscopy utilizes a special condenser which directs light towards an object at an angle, rather than from the bottom. As a result, particles or cells are seen as light objects against a dark background.
The Borrelia Burghdorferi spirochete is as long, as a fine human hair is thick.
Floaters can have the form of dots, circles, lines, cobwebs, thread-like strands, or squiggly lines. They move as your eyes move and seem to dart away when you try to look at them directly. They do not follow your eye movements precisely, and usually drift when your eyes stop moving.
Floaters are small clumps of cells or tissue that form in the vitreous humor, the clear jelly-like substance that fills the inside cavity of the eye. Although they appear to be in front of the eye, they are actually floating in the vitreous gel and are seen as shadows cast on the retina (the light-sensing inner layer of the eye).
