Sensitive To Sunlight On The Eyes?
Hello, I have a disruption in my eyes. When I ride a motor vehicle I feel sensitive to sunlight and I feel like closing my eyes. When I pull over I feel my eyes are hard to open and feel painful, just a few seconds can return to normal what does it include glitches or just glare
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Just as sun exposure can cause minor skin burns, excessive sun exposure can also cause eye irritation, especially because the eye is an organ that is more sensitive to light than the skin. Therefore, if you really work a lot in the sun, including if you drive during the hot day, you are strongly advised to use eye protection such as sunglasses that can filter out ultraviolet rays from the sun (besides of course you are also advised to use sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage). Exposure to ultraviolet rays that are too excessive and also long in the eye also has the potential to cause permanent damage to the retina of the eye (the inner layer of the eye that serves to capture the shadow of objects that enter the eye), therefore using these protective glasses is very very important to do.
If you feel pain in the eyes despite being exposed to light that is not too bright (for example, your home lights), then you need to re-evaluate. This can be caused by several possibilities, for example:
certain eye disorders, for example corneal abrasion, uveitis, conjunctivitis, iritis
other diseases not related to eye disorders, such as migraines, meningitis, common viral infections, albinism, etc.
drug side effects
Check with an ophthalmologist if you experience it.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
