    Well, yes, it can be a sign of photophobia. For photophobia, it is normal to feel sensitive to light. For the causes, many different diseases, disorders can be the causes. For example, the allergies or an infection which irritates the eyes, and then it can cause photophobia. According to some experts, people with depression, pain, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis are likely to get it too. To treat it, you can just wear eye patch which can just protect your eyes from the irritants. Also, you can just eat certain foods such as Chinese wolfberries. Besides, carotene from carrots and vitamin A can be useful too.

    Sensitivity to light would be caused by some eye infections, maybe some problems with your pupils, your retina, allergic reactions or an impaired immune systemetc, sometimes it would be photophobia, but sometimes it is only one of the symptoms of other diseases. If anything wrong with your eyes, you need to figure out the causes through a medical exam.

    If you find the symptom of your sensitive eyes to light and don't treat it carefully, you may cause the photophobia. If you sit in front of the computers for a long time with no rest, you will cause the sensitive eyes to light. You should not often use the eyes with no rest. Once you get the sensitive eyes to light, you could use the eye drops to release the symptom. The most important thing is to have the good rest for the eyes.
