The photogrey effect can also be canceled by your windshield tinting - leaving you unprotected from bright light in the car. Some artificial lighting also triggers the photogrey effect indoors, making it difficult to see. ...Read more

Some people when they read and concentrate inhibit their normal blink reflex and the tear film breaks down causing dry spots on the cornea which becomes irritated and the eyes start to burn.
