Are you talking about the sudden introduction to light after being in a dark environment—slowly adapting pupils?

@stanleybmanly When waking up in the morning.

Let me understand. When you wake up, the ambient light through your window hurts your eyes?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@stanleybmanly Yes. Correct.

Do your eyes adjust quickly? Have you thought to time them?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@stanleybmanly No. Pop helps.

Soda pop? You need looking after. See a doctor.

@stanleybmanly I had an eye exam last month, she prescribed “Blink eye drops”. Other than needing glasses and having an anomaly (blood vessels in my eyes swollen) she said I was fine. I will see a doctor Nov. 2nd.

Usually the only time I’ve ever experienced something like that was with a hangover.

My guess is it’s related to diabetes or you’re dehydrated.

It happened to me the other morning. I guess my pupils just weren’t reacting like they outta.
