Difficulty seeing in bright light environments - why?

Ophthalmology - LASIK Surgery

In brief: Light sensitivity

Some degree is light sensitivity is normal especially when moving from a dim to a very bright environment.
Some patients are more sensitive than others. Some eye conditions (dry eye, blepharitis, cataract, cystinosis, and others) can make these issues more significant. I would recommend an complete eye exam to rule out ocular pathology. If your eyes are normal, i would recommend sunglasses.
