Why is the center of whatever I look at sometimes appears to move around slightly by stretching, oscillating or swerving?

I have an unusual symptom I hope you can explain to me. The center of whatever I look at sometimes appears to move around slightly by stretching, oscillating, or swerving. The distortion is fairly subtle, but I am sure I am not imagining it. This phenomenon occurs even when one eye is closed, and it has been accompanied by minor dizziness and discomfort while trying to read. Am I experiencing the "wavy" vision of macular degeneration? If not, what could be causing this?
Many things could cause your symptoms, and you should see an ophthalmologist in the near future. Still, this does not sound as if it is a genuine emergency.
