Fluorescent Cause Eye Problems
Extreme sensitivity to fluorescent light. Cause fuzzy feeling in head. High anxiety. Occasional wave sensation in head. Help!!
This could be: Sub-migraine headaches, so start with a general physical and ask for a referral, if needed, to a neurologist. This could also be atypical light sensitivity of just the eyes and eye/brain interactions. For this, see an ophthalmologist. This should lower your anxiety, but if not, the anxiety could also cause hypersensitivity to external stimuli. Now, we have a different problem...anxiety.
Hi. Fluorescent lights really bother my eyes. Is there something I can take for this or a specific sunglasses for this condition? Thank you
Table lamp: The best way to avoid this sensation is to change to incandescent or LED light bulbs. If you can't change the fixtures above then try putting an incandescent table lamp in your work station. That will bleach out the rapid cycling of the fluorescent fixtures in your work area.
Can staring at a fluorescent lightbulb for a few minutes damage your eyes? I'd cover one eye and stare for 5 seconds then I would switch eyes. 2' away
Not a problem: The overall intensity of a fluorescent bulb is too low to cause any damage to the back of the eye. Hopefully you will find more productive use of your time.
Hi I had an eye ulcer last month which thankfully has healed but I am still sensitive to bright fluorescent lights. Would this be normal? Thank you
Yes, your eye: Could be sensitive for several months. Wear sunglasses to protect it if at all possible.
After getting a sinus infection, my vision gets blurry in one eye (mostly peripheral) after being in sunlight or fluorescent lighting for a long time?
3 weeks boy. White-blond hair. Pupils seem to be black, but has greyish ring in iris. Fluorescent light reflects off eyes. Has brown freckle. Albinism?
Oculocutaneous: Albinism is a group of 4 conditions, each caused by a specific gene mutation inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. When both parents carry the gene mutation, each of their children has a 25% chance of having oca. See his pediatrician ; a pediatric ophthalmologist for diagnosis ; referral to a geneticist if he has it. Lack of melanin in the retina causes vision problems, so you need to know.
I lose control of my legs and fall. Fatigue, fluorescent lights, seem to trigger this. I have tbi, chronic sinusitis, headaches, sometimes drooping eye. Ok to ignore because it's just a headache?
During my last 2 pregnancies every time I am around fluorescent lights I get a fuzzy feeling in my head, tingling in scalp, and pressure in face.
Anything is possible: After years as a family practice physician, I still am amassed at the variability of a human body. You description of symptoms are just another example. This is not harmful to you but is just one of the things that make you a unique person.
Exposed to CO for about 1 yr. Some symptoms cleared, but I have problems w/ balance & sensitivity to fluorescent & WiFi, speech. Will clear w/ time?
Is wearing SPF 30+ enough protection? Do I really need a hat everyday or is that only recommended? Will fluorescent lights also cause flare-ups?
What condition?: If you mean Polymorphic Light Eruption, then you will need to avoid exposure to lights which trigger your problem. SPF 30 is sufficient for partial sun protection but should be applied about 45 mins prior to exposure and every 2 hrs thereafter when exposed to the sun. Wearing a hat with wide brim is always a good idea. I still don't know whether you have lupus or something else.See 1 more doctor answer
Have had chest infections problems since October had flu jab non smoker but have asthma GERD arthritis ckd now hVe what seems like fluorescent urine?
Need good physician: With your multiple medical problems, each of which should be manageable, and your multiple medications, you need a single competent primary care physician to supervise you and offer the reassurance and guidance about a hanging-on chest cold (?) that we can't. "Fluorescent urine" is almost always medication or food coloring -- taking vitamin B2?
Replace: Ask your employer to replace them or find another place to work. Replacing them would represent a significant expense to the employer and the lighting from other sources would probably not be sufficient for the work place; so I would not be optimistic that you can talk the employer into doing this. This leaves you with accepting them or finding a new place to work.
The thin particles: Of poo on your toilet paper may be refracting the light and giving the appearance of fluorescent green. In addition some of the byproducts of digestion (biliverdin and bilirubin) that are in your poo could also appear to be green. This is unlikely to be anything pathological. Does your urine glow in the dark? That would be worrisome.
What are the chances of getting mercury poisoning from handling a broken fluorescent bulb? Should I get my mercury levels tested?
Very low: Very unlikely you would get mercury poisoning however follow up with PMD if s/sx.
When I take viagra, all the light looks a bit fluorescent and blue. Should I switch to Cialis or levitra (vardenafil) or will they have the same effect?
Isomeric change: Neonatal jaundice is often caused by an accumulation of fat soluble indirect bilirubin. This indirect bilirubin undergoes isomeric change upon being exposed to fluorescent light of specific wave length and become water soluble. This process allows indirect bilirubin be excreted without undergoing conjugation process in liver.
No: Not at all. Why not simply take a prgnancy test?
