Only one eye is red in flash photo, the other white-ish. Is that a sign of brain tumor in an adult?

Only one eye is red in flash photo, the other white-ish. Is that a sign of brain tumor in an adult?

Doubtful.: While loss of the light reflex can rarely indicate there is a mass in your eyeball, brain tumors will typically not cause this. Brain tumors can cause swelling behind the eyes which should not affect how your eyes appear in a photograph. Loss of the light reflex and swelling behind your eyes can both be easily evaluated by visiting your optometrist. Read more

How long do your eyes take to see after experiencing photo sensitivity?

How long do your eyes take to see after experiencing photo sensitivity?

Several minutes: Following a photosensitivity event (e.g. a very bright flash in pitch dark), it usually takes 60-180 seconds for sight to recover. In some people it take longer and some less but those are the average ranges. This is why some law enforcement officers are taught to close one eye if they expect to have to discharge their firearm at night; the closed eye will not be effected by the bright flash. Read more

Why would my eye color change to red in photo?

Why would my eye color change to red in photo?

Light direction: Pupils normally look dark, as the direct light path would in fact be from behind your head, which blocks that. Cameras with a light source closely aligned to the lens, can cause the red eye which is in fact the natural color of the back of the eye. Lighter, larger pupils are more prone to this. To eliminate this if you take pictures is tell the subject to look at your shoulder. Read more

What could it mean if I have one red eye and one white eye in a photo?

Leukocoria: We've all seen people with red eyes in photos (a normal light reflex off the retina, the back of the eye), but when one eye is white (leukocoria), while it may be nothing, it may be the sign of a serious eye problem, like a retinal detachment, or a tumor in the eye. Please keep in mind that these bad things are very rare, but in any case you should visit your eye doctor for a dilated eye exam now Read more

Eye exam: The difference could be just in the light reflection from positioning of the camera. But it could also be something more serious like a cataract present in one eye. The difference between the two eyes certainly warrants a thorough eye exam by an ophthalmologist, even if you don't notice anything unusual with your vision. Read more

Pain on left eye and left side on top of the head, phono and photo sensible also. No fever, no stiff neck, had this pain for 3 days day and night...

Best to be seen by a: Physician to rule out anything unusual, like a stroke. However, it sounds like a migraine. Something else to consider is hemicrania continua (hc), a very specific headache that can be sensitive to treatment with endomethacin. Ask your physician. Many people do not consider hc, but with your age, male, and symptoms, it may be that and a short run of endomethacin can give great relief. Read more

Almost 3 yrs ago I noticed my son had a yellow pupil in a photograph taken with a cell phone. He has had a few eye exams, and is healthy. But sometimes he will still have a yellow pupil. Worrisome?

Almost 3 yrs ago I noticed my son had a yellow pupil in a photograph taken with a cell phone. He has had a few eye exams, and is healthy. But sometimes he will still have a yellow pupil. Worrisome?

Maybe: A yellow pupil instead of the typical red pupil in a photo can indicate something going on that is interfering with the light reflex. (cataract, retinal pathology) a complete, dilated, eye exam done by an ophthalmologist will be able to diagnose any abnormalities that may be the cause. The retina needs to be examined...Not just a vision test. Read more
