Are my artificial tears causing me to see halos and starbursts?
APR 03, 2016
I was recently diagnosed by my ophthalmologist with dry eyes so he prescribed hypromellose (artificial tears). After using it for two weeks my eyes were more sensitive to light and I saw starburst and halo in bright lights at night. I have been to another eye doctor and everything was normal. My question is, was this a side effects of the artificial tears? Because I was not seeing starbursts before using it.
