Light Sensitivity

What to are some causes of light sensitivity?

Conditions that cause light sensitivity include:

  • Infection or inflammation inside the eye: endophthalmitis, uveitis

  • Infection or inflammation of the inner surface of the eyelids: conjunctivitis

  • Scratch or infection on the surface of the eye: corneal abrasion or ulcer

  • Cataract or secondary cataract

Inflammation inside or on the surface of the eye can cause damage to ocular structures which can be prevented by early diagnosis and treatment. If you have recently developed light sensitivity, contact your ophthalmologist today to make an appointment for a comprehensive eye exam.
