Long story short, I had to spend 48 hours in a holding cell in a michigan county jail. The cell was appx 10x18 and constantly brightly illuminated by 4 banks (2 per side) of T12 36-48" bulbs.
The lighting was 24/7 and other than arrangement we spent 99% of our time confined to that room including meals and sleep time. There were no bunks or any other forms of shade or escape, just a concrete floor and a concrete bench on either long side of the wall.
Around day two I noticed that if I looked at things from different angles. My vision would take on a moderate to deep blue tinge but return to normal if I turned and looked in or from a different direction. I got out today and see this still happening, especially if I look at blue or black objects with the occasional flash of a whitish halo around my peripheral if I look away from bright colors, on a computer screen for example. There is no headache in association but it's pretty annoying.
Is this a common side effect or a sign of a larger problem? I realize it's not enough to give a solid diagnosis but what are your thoughts?
If it matters, the basin of the room as well as the interior side wall of the benches painted what appeared to be a pale blue with the walls and entry door appearing yellowish under this light.....the banks appeared to have a clear fractal lens and the bulbs seemed to give off a whitish yellow light.......no idea how many lumens.....but it was a constant miday summer in this room. I know that having this much detail is probably bad in itself but when you are looked in this room 24/7......it's hard to miss the details....
Thanks for your Question
Well this can be caused by:
1- Dry cornea from phototoxicity of the cornea which can be treated with artificial tears
2- Floaters which is most of the time a benign condition but you have to be examined by a doctor
3- Elevated Intraocular pressure which can cause rainbow and halos around lights and in this case you have to visit an eye doctor to measure intraocular pressure.
