    Vertical rays/streaks of light when squinting

    Hello. I'm 25 years old. I have a problem with streaks of light, beams emitting from light sources. This streaks are vertical and they are stretching down or up from light sources( street lights, car light, TV, etc). The strangest thing is, that is some reaction beetween my eyelids and cornea/iris. Streaks are getting longer when i am squnting my eyelids. I can eliminate it, if i open my eyes wide, if my eyelid covers cornea, i am getting really long rays. 4 years ago i had laser treatment on my retina( for holes in retina) and 2 months after this, i started to see floaters, then this strange streaks of light. I was examined by many, many doctors... no clear diagnosis. One doctor thinks, that is becouse i have small amount of irregular astigmatism and my accommodation is weak, but i was trying contact lenses and it doesnt help ;/. Other doctor thinks that is that is some reaction beetwen cornea, tears and eyelid and maybe surgery on eyelids could help, but im really not sure about this. Two other doctors examined me and they think i have something wrong with my lens ( one said i have internal astigmatism caused by lens). I was trying alphagan drops for pupils, but it doesnt work too. I am researching about this problem in internet ( seems it's rare problem), but still cant find answer what is causing it.

    I'm having the exact same problem. Extreme glare causing beams of light from most light sources. Multiple docs say they can't find anything wrong. Any resolution?

    Mine started a couple of months ago. First with floaters and then the glare about a month later. I've seen that some people have issues with this after having eye surgery, but I haven't had anything done to my eyes.

    Did you have any dry eye symptoms before or after the problem?
