Are you talking about the sudden introduction to light after being in a dark environment—slowly adapting pupils?

@stanleybmanly When waking up in the morning.

Let me understand. When you wake up, the ambient light through your window hurts your eyes?

Do your eyes adjust quickly? Have you thought to time them?

Soda pop? You need looking after. See a doctor.

@stanleybmanly I had an eye exam last month, she prescribed “Blink eye drops”. Other than needing glasses and having an anomaly (blood vessels in my eyes swollen) she said I was fine. I will see a doctor Nov. 2nd.

Usually the only time I’ve ever experienced something like that was with a hangover.

My guess is it’s related to diabetes or you’re dehydrated.

It happened to me the other morning. I guess my pupils just weren’t reacting like they outta.
