I'm 50 years old. Recently I started waking up every morning with blurred vision. When I drive to work in the dark, I see vivid rainbow colored halos around every headlight, street light etc. It occurs in both eyes, with my left being worse than my right. There is sometimes aching in my left eye and general discomfort in both eyes if I try to look at the headlights. This lasts anywhere from 3-6 hours before my vision returns to normal. It is very frightening to drive when my eyes are like this. I tried a Muro drop the other morning. It pretty much restored my right eye to normal within a few minutes, but the symptoms returned a while later. In the left eye, the Muro took the color out of the halos and improved my blurred vision but did not resolve it. This does not happen at night, only in the early morning. I have had difficulty tolerating glare for a long time and generally don't like light at all, chalked that up to my tiny left cataract and DES. i also see halos that are the same color of the light they surround, and star bursts with headlights. I also thought those were related to my cataract and DES. I plan on seeing my eye doctor soon but wondered if this could be the result of my dry eye or if I should be concerned about something else? I have been declared a glaucoma suspect with high normal pressures (18-20). I have used Lotemax for some time for my DES ( with very close monitoring of my pressures and retinal imaging). I'm afraid to use the Muro drops with my DES, they burn like crazy. Has anyone here who has not had eye surgery experienced seeing colored halos with their DES?
No announcement yet.
Can dry eyes cause one to see colored halos around bright lights in the morning?
