Question: Really Bad Light Sensitivity

Recca25 - Sat Apr 21, 2007 10:55 pm

Hi I have been having light sensitivity for the past 4 months and have been to 3 different eye doctors. Each time they tell me there is nothing physicaly wrong with my eyes and none have really given me an answer as to why I am having this problem. The light sensitivity seems to be getting worse and sunglasses don't help. When exposed to bright light or now seems to be any light I get intense pain in my eyes. The pain is usually either at the top of the eye or in the inside corner. I really need help with this as it is really hurting my life. I am thinking of seeing another eye doctor but I am afraid of getting the same answer I have gotten the last 3 times. Do you have any suggestions on what I could do or what I could tell the doctor or maybe see a different type of doctor.
