Sensitivity To Light Seeing Light On Objects Have Hyperthyroidism
Seeing a lot of negative afterimages of objects (not just lights) and experiencing light sensitivity. Could chronic dry eye cause this?
Can you cure seeing bright lights in your vision? I was looking and seen a bright light from the sun reflecting on my tv and now i always see it? Help
See your eye doctor: Usually when there's reflection of the sun off glass that you happen to catch, it does leave an after image that usually fades. Depending on how long you were staring at it, or if was momentary, will be good to share with your eye specialist. People who stare at the sun can cause another condition which is solar retinopathy. In either case, you want to have your eye specialist examine your eyes, and do a dilated exam so they can see your retina. ...Read more
Common: Many are sensitive to light and that is in part why sunglasses sell so well. It is more common in lighter eyed persons.

How are floaters a sign of MS? I have floaters, with a little bit of sensitivity to light also. When I move my eyes, look into light, it becomes blur
Not true: "Floaters" are definitely not a sign of MS or even a symptom. Sensitivity to light is not specific to MS either. If you are referring to the possibility of having an optic neuritis then, I would recommend visual evoked potentials if you're looking for a TEST that may be able to give a bit more support to the picture but otherwise, so far what you've described is not MS. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can the medication topamax (topiramate) cause palinopsia? I'm on it for frequent migraines and have started noticing trailing in vision and sensitivity to light.
See eye doctor.: I do not think that palinopsia or having trailing images, as a specific complaint, is listed as a known complication. This medication, however excellent, has been known to cause significant eye problems that can be irreversible. Such things as narrow angle glaucoma can also occur. I would ask for the pressure in your eyes to be checked now and see your eye doctor ASAP. ...Read more
My eyes hurt and loose focus when exposed to reading, bright light and sun light. I wear glasses and my vision is getting worse. ?
General health?: Sometimes vision changes can be caused by high or low blood sugar - it is important to be tested for diabetes. Also, sometimes thyroid disease can cause eye changes. Try to avoid too much caffeine and concentrated sugars and see if that helps. Also, it is common in the 40's for the lenses of the eyes to lose the ability to change focus, so I would recommend another eye exam. ...Read more
