Eyes Hurt And Headache When Seeing Light?

Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Eyes that are too sensitive to light, in the form of excessive glare or pain when seeing light, are called photophobia.
This condition can be caused by several things, including:
Diseases of the eye cornea (inflammation of the cornea / keratitis, corneal edema)
Dry eye (dry eye syndrome)
Inflammation of the uvea (uveitis)
Migraine headaches can sometimes also be accompanied by photophobia
To ascertain the cause of your photophobia, you should consult an ophthalmologist for further examination directly so that treatment can be done according to the cause.
As for what you should do is:
Use sunglasses when the eyes are exposed to sunlight or bright light
Avoid eye rubbing habits
Wash hands before and after touching the eye area
Avoid the habit of looking at the screen for too long (computers, cellphones, tablets, etc.)
When using contact lenses, use them properly and hygienically. Avoid taking too long or while sleeping
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
