Eyes Glare When Exposed To Light?
afternoon, want to ask. my eyes have problems when seeing lights / light, especially at night when looking at vehicle lights, which I see are very bright even to the point of closing my eyes. in this condition would I be better off using photochromic or polarized sunglasses to drive? thanks
Hello Cahyo, Thank you for the question.
Does this complaint also occur in the morning? Then do you experience other visual disturbances such as blurred vision or visible black shadows that move along with the movement of the eyeball? When riding at night, normally the eye will see more glare because of the dark conditions of the surroundings (thus causing light contrast). This condition is usually not a condition to worry about especially if indeed the lights from other vehicles lead to the front of your car (using distant lights). In these conditions, it is indeed not easy to avoid because it relates to the way other people drive their vehicles. However, the use of either polarized or photochromic glasses (these glasses will turn dark if exposed to ultraviolet light) at night is not appropriate because it can further block your view when driving. You are encouraged to be more careful when driving, especially on roads where the lighting is lacking. If you feel glare from the sun when driving in the morning, you can use any kind of sunglasses both polarized and photochromic, because both of them can protect the eyes from the sun / ultrviolet which disturbs you while driving.
However, if what you experience is seeing flashes of light that also occur in the morning, accompanied by the presence of dark shadows in your eye view (floaters), this condition may be caused by a certain medical condition such as infection, bleeding in the eyeball, tear in the retina , retinal detachment. In this case, you are advised to immediately consult an ophthalmologist further. Your doctor needs to ask about your symptoms and do an examination of your eyes to determine the cause. Further treatment will be given by a doctor according to the condition that you are experiencing. Meanwhile, you are advised to maintain eye health by maintaining correct reading distance, reading or working in a room with comfortable lighting, and regularly check your eye health to the eye doctor.
I hope this helps.
