Common Eye Symptoms - Glare
Glare is a visual impairment that occurs when the amount of stray light entering the eye getting scattered. It reduces visual contrast, resulting in symptoms of poor vision and discomfort, especially difficulty looking at bright lights (such as seeing on-coming car headlights).
While almost everyone experiences glare at some point, factors such as age, eye colour, pupil size, uncorrected refractive error and eye conditions such as dry eyes, cataracts and just having had any eye surgery done are the most common contributors.
A trial of eyedrops for dry eyes, wearing sunglasses or prescription glasses if there’s any refractive error if one experiences glare, but you should seek an eye doctor’s consult if there is persistent glare or visual impairment.
