Hello, I have difficulty with light such as when exposed to sunlight or other lighting? Is there a problem and what is the solution?

1 Answer:

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:

Eye disorders
Corneal Abrasion
Keratitis
Conjunctivitis
Aniridia
Iritis
Coloboma, and so on


Central nervous system disorders
Meningitis
Supranuclear palsy
Brain tumors, and so on


Another cause
Albinism (in albino people)
Migraine
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.
