    Question:

    Can eye allergies make you see halos and starbursts?


    Answer:

    Allergies would not directly cause these symptoms. But aggressive eye rubbing can cause temporary visual disturbances that may include the sensation of flashing lightshalos or starbursts. However, if you have these symptoms and they persist for more than a few seconds it is something that should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist.
