    Well, first, you should know that photophobia is eye discomfort in bright light. So you can just check it with your own situation. Generally speaking, for many people, photophobia is not due to any disease. But on the other hand, severe photophobia may occur with eye problems and can cause severe eye pain even in relatively low light. So if you have eye pain in your eyes, you need to be alarmed about it. Anyway, if you have some symptoms like that, you'd better go and see an eye doctor as soon as possible. I think he can give you the good advice.

    Well, it seems that you know little about photophobia. So, let me briefly introduce you to photophobia, which has been a fact of life, So, generally speaking, if a patient has got photophobia, he will tend to have watery eyes or painful feelings as long as his eyes are exposed to sunshine or strong lights, which is really a pain. And his vision could be affected. So, just take some precautions to fight against the problem.
