I would say that I am moderately sensitive to light. I like sunny days and such, but many times prefer low lights. My husband is always turning on the light over the stove to "help me see what I'm cooking" and I frequently turn it off because it's either unnecessary or it feels like too much light (depending on how much other light is coming in from the windows, or from the ceiling lights, etc.).

However, when I'm at the eye doctor, and he shines that HORRID, HORRIBLE, AWFUL light deep into my eyes, it is all I can do to keep from squeezing my eyes closed; and if I can manage to keep them open, my eyes pour buckets of tears.   It's a little frustrating and a little funny, to both me and the doc. Just thinking about it right now is making my eyes tear up. [But then, when I see a person with an eye infection, my eyes start tearing up, as if my eyes are the ones looking/hurting like that. So maybe it's more in my head...]

Does anyone experience sensitivity to lights? I think I might be a little extra sensitive than most I know. I have my eyes examined annually. In fact just did this past Monday and am told to wear sunglasses    Perhaps will need transition lenses
Golfz~, do you mind if we start a pool on what Genotype you are?

I want to put my money on Explorer.    

I may have to rustle up some secretors out there to make this work ......

I don't mind at all but I'm not yet ready to read (as I am still on the LR4YT book) and have not decided to go to GTD. So how would we discern what type I am

Thanks Lola, I just ordered the book. I can tell you measuring was quite easy as there was no doubt which fingers were longer...

Another nonnie here (and Explorer too) very sensitive to light (and noise). I even wear sunglasses on bright gray days when there's no visible sun. I detest movies that flash quickly from frame to frame, seem to be more and more of them out there these days. And live concerts with flashing lights. Department store lighting makes my eyes tired and red. BUT, I am also sensitive to lighting if it's too dim too and always turning a light on to "see". What's with that?

I can relate all to well. You see, others don't see what we see. So I am glad you agree on what we see

I get it when I'm not feeling good.  I still am kind of like that now.  My son is terrible.  He has my chiro turn off the lights when he gets adjusted.  He needs Sunglasses A LOT.  He's a red head with blue eyes.

This is all quite interesting which makes one become curious as to what correlations exist and why this occurs. And I thought my experiences with it were unique...

I've always been sensitive to light. Sunlight doesn't bother me as much as Flourescent lights or those new headlights (the bluish ones) it feels like someone is stabbing me in the eyes when a car with those headlights comes towards me. Ouch!

My eyes are very sensitive to the light but I don't have the mood changes that Spatz mentions.
I wear brown tinted (all other tints make things worse) high quality sunglasses every time I leave the house, even on cloudy days.
My eyes were not always so sensitive. I never needed sunglasses until after my daughters were born, pregnancy seemed to change somthing.

Another explorer/non-secretor here with light sensitivity.  It is good not to feel so alone.  I can't believe it took me so long to figure out how much light really bothered me.  I just figured it out this weekend.

I kept making little adjustments along the way, heavy drapes at home, light filters at work, transitions lenses, prescriptions sunglasses, etc.

It has been getting worse lately and right now I have spring-time allergies/sensitivities that make my eyes ache.  I also have inflammation problems and I haven't had enough sleep at night in a week. Any one of these could be making this worse for me.

I turned down the brightness and contrast on my monitor at home this weekend, I will probably try that at work too.

The light-sensitivity was really stressing me out without my even knowing that it was bothering me that much.  I just kept powering through my week without realizing, and then spending all weekend indoors behind dark drapes, wondering why I'm so anti-social.

I'm still adjusting to taking care of this particular problem and I have trouble balancing too much/not enough light.

It seems to be worse at different times of the day?

Don't have time to read the thread right now. Sorry if this was already mentioned. When my body was full of yeast, I could not tolerate the sun. I kept all the blinds in the house closed. Did not know why at the time but now I do. I would feel quite ill if exposed to sunlight. Now that the yeast problem is under control, I can love the sun again. Yeast does not thrive well in sunlight apparently. Discovered this from the book I found at a thrift store years ago. Hope you will be able to enjoy the sun again.

My daughter has Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome ("SSS", also known as Irlen Syndrome or Meares-Irlen syndrome).  One of the symptoms is sensitivity to light, especially florescent lights.  SSS can also have a myriad of different symptoms that can be confused with dyslexia and even low-level autism.

The "cure" to use colored overlays, glasses or contacts.  My daughter has contacts where the center is tinted with an 8-layer tint (which appears dark purple).  She can not see the color when wearing her lenses, but it corrects a lot of the pain and physical symptoms instantaneously.
