Hi there.

Wavy lines in the vision are something that happen very commonly and is pretty normal to have some wavy lines in the vision of most people. If it is not disturbing your vision and is in the peripheral vision of your eye, I would not worry whatsoever.

If, however, the wavy lines are increasing with time and affecting your vision, then I would recommend that you be seen by an ophthalmologist to have a look at your retina to make sure everything is okay.
