I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Why are my eyes sensitive to bright light?

I have Fuchs and diabetic retinopathy. I am having laser treatments for the retinopathy. The bright lights are like torture I can't hardly stand it. Is the Fuchs causing this pain during my laser treatments? My Fuchs seems to be getting worse, can the treatments be affecting that as well?

Hello
Welcome to Health care magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having sensitivity of light.
This is caused in your case by Fuchs dystrophy secondary to corneal edema.
If the corneal edema is worsening keratoplasty is required for its treatment.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Hope this is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
With regards

I had a one time occurance of venous statis retinopathy after my third child was born 13 years ago. It resolved on it's own within 2 months and did not require treatment. I was told not to use hormones for birth control. Now I have entered Menopause and have symptoms which could be treated by HRT. Does the one time occurance of venous statis retinopathy make HRT contraindicated? ( 47 yo white female, 5'4" tall, 135 lbs - no significant medical issues)
