Hello

You are probably suffering from some damage to your cornea in either eye which is a treatable condition. You are therefore advised to see an eye specialist and take necessary treatment.

Meantime, you can use dark glasses to avoid photo-phobia and pain killers with some anti-biotic eye drops to avoid pain in the eyes.
