Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on your description , it would be advisable to get the intra occular pressure checked. This is known as photophobia and can occur in acute angle closure glaucoma. It can occur in meningitis.
Migraine headaches and blepharospasm can also be associated with similar presentation.

let me know if you have any query

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
