Diffraction limits how small something can be resolved in visible light. The limit is about 0.25 microns. Everything about making and using a microscope and recording the image raises this limit. So, with a top end scope I was told a 2 micron particle is easily seen. It's features are not, hence the fuzzy ball description.
