The Cause Of Difficulty Focusing When Under Bright Light?
I want to ask the doctor. Why is it hard to focus under the bright light. For example sunlight coming into the room. As a result, I rarely study after school and have difficulty focusing in class
Hello Lisa, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously I want to confirm in advance, what do you feel when there is a bright light entering the room? Do you experience symptoms such as discomfort in the eyes, a sense of wanting to close your eyes, or sometimes accompanied by headaches when you look at bright lights?
If indeed these symptoms that you feel, you experience it with photophobia or sensitivity to light. Photophobia can be caused by a variety of possibilities, including:
Eye disorders such as corneal abrasion, keratitis, uveitis, conjunctivitis, retinal detachment, eye irritation such as contact lens wear, allergies, irritation due to dust or pollution, or post eye surgery
certain congenital diseases such as albinism, total color blindness, keratosis follicular pulmonary decalvans (KFSD)
other diseases such as meningitis, rabies, poisoning certain substances such as mercury, botulinum toxin
the use of certain drugs such as furosemide, quinine, tetracycline, doxycycline, belladona
If you experience the following symptoms, you should immediately see a doctor:
there is pain in the eyes, red eyes, vision problems
there is a high fever, stiff neck, severe headaches, nausea, vomiting
there are neurological disorders such as hearing loss, motor disorders, sensory disorders, etc.
If indeed these symptoms are very disturbing, you should also check yourself to a general practitioner first. The general practitioner will carry out a thorough check-up and will refer to a specialist if necessary.
Some things you can do:
Avoid staring at bright light directly
Use a hat or umbrella or sunglasses when you go out of the room during the day
Use sunglasses with photochromic lenses, which are lenses that can darken themselves when in very bright places
Using prosthetic contact lenses, contact lenses that can reduce the amount of light entering your eyes
If indeed the room is very bright, you can also try changing the lights to make them fainter
If you use certain drugs that have the potential to cause photophobia, you should consult with your doctor about the side effects you feel.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
