    Eye concerns

    Hello All, About a week ago I had an eye exam. At the exam, I was told that I have a small reading prescription of 0.75 both eyes with astigmatism in one eye. I had this same prescription some 10 years ago. But I never wore the reading glasses. Then the doc went on to dilate my eyes. The dilation effects didn't seem to go away for many hours.

    Sunlight Eye Damage?

    Might be nothing and I don't know if anyone here would have the answer to this or not. Today I was outside and forced myself to look at something, while squinting, and resisting the urge to look away due to sunlight hitting the corner of my left eye. I resisted a somewhat strong urge to look away for roughly 1.45 seconds. During that time, I felt an unpleasant sensation, as if the sunlight was doing damage/had the potential to do damage if I didn't stop when I did. I assume if I did any damage....
