light looks funny

Hello, I am having some problems with my perception of light. When I am driving and see brake or headlights the light seems to almost spread out in a linear fashion as if a spear is impaling the actual source of light. Imagine your headlight and the light it emits then blurry triangles that are at 3 o'clock and 7:30. This also happens when I am watching television or on the computer. It disrupts my concentration and my brain can not focus on what I am watching. PLease help. IT gets really bad at night time. When the difference in light and dark colors become more apparent.

Re: light looks funny

There are many possible reasons for this so you really need to get it checked out by a doctor or ophthalmologist. The first thing to determine is whether both eyes are affected. You don't mention glasses or contacts so I suppose they can be eliminated. However, something as simple as excess tears can cause this sort of effect. On the other hand, it could be due to a medical condition. Do get it checked before it becomes an emergency.
