  • Can't See in Sunlight


    Question:

    I am unable to see anything during sunlight. My vision is absolutely blind in sunlight and it reflects back and also color is not visible in normal light or in sunlight. What's wrong with me?


    Answer:

    Possible causes of your difficulty seeing in bright sunlight would include developing cataracts within the eyes, swelling of the clear corneas on the front of the eyes, or dilation of the pupils of the eyes by medications or toxins, so you should consult your ophthalmologist to determine the underlying cause of your problem.
