Is it normal to have extreme sensitivity to light when on anti seizure medicines?
So My eyes would be extremely sensitive to light and try to roll up into the back of my head like as soon as i would force them to look down or forward they would immediately look back up. This would happen more often at night time and often while I was driving. Also the eyes would be supersensitive and i cou;d see every tiny little detail and it would be so clear it would almost hurt.
These symptoms can occur because of effect of the antiseizure drugs.
