A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Photophobia
I had a question the other day about photophobia.
Photophobia is a condition where bright lights hurt your eyes.
Another name for this is light sensitivity.
It’s a common symptom associated with several different conditions, ranging from minor irritations to serious medical emergencies.
Mild cases make you squint in a brightly lit room or while outside.
In more severe cases, it causes considerable pain when your eyes are exposed to almost any type of light.
Photophobia is a common symptom of migraines.
Light sensitivity is commonly associated with a few serious conditions affecting your brain.
>encephalitis, which happens when your brain is inflamed from a viral infection or other cause.
>meningitis, a bacterial infection causing inflammation of the membranes surrounding your brain and spinal cord.
>subarachnoid hemorrhage, which happens when you have bleeding between your brain and the surrounding layers of tissue.
Photophobia is also common in several conditions affecting your eyes.
>corneal abrasion, or injury to the cornea, or the outermost layer of your eye.
>scleritis, which occurs when the white part of your eye becomes inflamed.
>conjunctivitis, also known as “pink eye,” occurs when the layer of tissue covering the white part of your eye becomes infected or inflamed.
>dry eye syndrome, which happens when your tear ducts can’t make enough tears or make poor quality tears. It results in your eyes being excessively dry.
To deal with photophobia it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Include the following in your diet: broccoli, raw cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, green vegetables, squash, sunflower seeds, and watercress.
*Eliminate sugar and white flour from your diet.
*Stay out of sunlight and keep the lights dimmed inside to help make photophobia less uncomfortable.
*Keeping your eyes closed or covering them with dark tinted glasses can also provide relief.
*Avoid smoke-filled rooms.
*Eliminate toxic cosmetics, eye care, and personal care products.
*Eliminate chlorinated shower/bath water, which could be irritating.
