I have had two small ones in my left eye since 1992. I don't realize that they're there unless someone mentions it.

But now it seems like something is blocking my vision in my right eye slightly. Earlier today, I noticed the same thing. Thought it was one of my long hairs, but wasn't. It is foggy like off and on like in my middle of my eye. There it is again. It isn't a floater but like something describable. I am now worried again.
Is it true that they can be caused by a traumatic experience? I was told that they were not at one time.

Yes I know about bilberry and that you take it internally but the OP was talking about oil of oregano which should not be taken internally unless well diluted. It would be like drinking tea tree oil!
