Why does the sun still hurt my eyes, even when I wear sunglasses and a hat?
OCT 11, 2014
My eyes feel as if they are sunburned when spending extended time outdoors even with sunglasses and a floppy hat. The next day I experience vision problems and blurred vision. Does this point to any underlying issue?
Your symptoms could be normal, however, they could indicate some degree of inherited problems with how your retina receives light. You should visit an ophthalmologist to discuss your symptoms. He or she may ask if you have problems with night vision or if you don't see colors as fully as you used to. This can help identify problems with the retina.
