    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 it was minor, but I love my eyesight and don't want my eyes to be harmed in any way. The only major symptom I've experienced is the general sense that my eyesight may be slightly worse now than before, although I may be just imagining this. So what I want to know is what is the possibility I've done any actual damage based on my description. I would love to know so I can stop worrying if I've done damage or not. Thank you.

    RE: Sunlight Eye Damage?

    There are 2 effects of sunlight to our eyes, number 1: blurred vision, and number 2: cataracts. However blurred vision is more a temporary effect, and cataract usually appear after many years of exposure.

    It is very unlikely that the amount of sunlight you got damaged your eye. So take it easy, but always use sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection whenever you are outside.
