Question

 

 

Hi,

I noticed when i took my eyeglasses off. When i look at streetlights about 10m away i see big halos with a few coloured rings on the outer edge. Is this normal??

With glasses too i see it but i see it more without. Is it glaucoma? I'm worried. Had some eye pain yesterday but very light.

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

Two main causes at your age to see halos around lights, first is astigmatism. You might need new eyeglasses with different refractive power. You have to visit an optometrist for new check-up.

The second thing is dry eye syndrome. Use lubricant eye drops 3-4 times a day for a week and see how things go.

If no improvement after those two things, then you have to visit an eye doctor for further evaluation.
