Eye sensitivity to light

My eyes have been feeling real sensitive to light recently and this mostly occurs at night. At times when i am driving i feel like traffic lights and road-lights are super bright and it makes me feel uncomfortable. I also have been super sensitive to flickering lights making me feel nauseous at times. ( I normally spend a large portion of my day starring at the computer screen)  What could be the potential problems here?

Hi @cyeap this indicates sensitivity to light and possibly photophobia. If you experience this in association with fever or headache, you should go for a review with your doctor for an examination.

Otherwise, other possible causes include problems with your vision or inflammation in the eye. A review with an Optometrist or Ophthalmologist for an examination would be a good place to start to get to the bottom of it. Hope this helps!
