Photophobia:- fear of light
Photophobia is eye discomfort in bright light. Photophobia is common. For many people, the problem is not due to any disease. Severe photophobia may occur with eye problems. It can cause bad eye pain, even in low light.
Causes of Photophobia:
v Photophobia is not an eye disease, but a symptom of many conditions such as infection or inflammation that can irritate the eyes.
v Light sensitivity also can be a symptom of underlying diseases that don't directly affect the eyes, such as virus-caused illnesses or severe headaches or migraine.
v People with a lighter eye color also may experience more light sensitivity in environments such as bright sunlight, because darker-colored eyes contain more pigment to protect against harsh lighting.
v Other common causes of photophobia include corneal abrasion, uveitis and a central nervous system disorder such as meningitis. Light sensitivity also is associated with a detached retina, contact lens irritations, sunburn and refractive surgery.
v Photophobia often accompanies albinism, total color deficiency, botulism, rabies, mercury poisoning, conjunctivitis, keratitis and iritis.
