Re: Relief for CFIDS related photophobia??
You might want to try pin hole glasses as they reduce the brightness and glare. Do an internet search for "pin hole glasses" to get an idea of how they work. You should be able to get them in your local pharmacy or health food shop,if not, then certainly online.You dont need a flash pair- should only cost about $25.They are awkward at first but you quickly get used to them.
The other thing u shouldnt be doing is watching tv or computer in a dark room. This would make anyones eyes worse.Get a low level light (get a lower watt lamp if necessary) positioned away from the tv/computer- either the ceiling light or a light placed behind you.
For anyone who is getting close to wearing glasses to see the computer, try enlarging the screen by hooking up to a large PC monitor-they are getting up to 30 inches which is double the average computer size. Better still, is hooking the PC up to a good 42 inch LCD TV that is computer compatible.
