Eyes Glare When Looking At Light
Hello, I have difficulty with light such as when exposed to sunlight or other lighting? Is there a problem and what is the solution?
Hello Ametta Rinjani,
Do you mean the difficulty is excessive glare when seeing the light? Photophobia is the term for excessive glare or increased sensitivity to light. Photophobia is a symptom that can occur due to some of the following disorders:
Coloboma, and so on
Central nervous system disorders
Brain tumors, and so on
Albinism (in albino people)
Side effects of certain drugs, such as benzodiazepines, quinine
Mental disorders such as anxiety, agoraphobia, and so forth
The state of photophobia can limit a patient's daily activities, so it is necessary to find out and treat the cause. An examination with an eye specialist can be done first to rule out the possible causes of photophobia from eye disorders.
Temporary solutions that can be done are:
Use sunglasses when going out of the room or use photochromic lens glasses that can darken according to the level of sun exposure
Use glasses with tinted lenses to block certain light waves
Use a wide hat
Adjusts the brightness level of the lamps used indoors
* In the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak, pay attention to and comply with prevention measures when you want to leave the house, especially to a health facility.
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
