Eye and Vision Care

Sunlight Vision is as if I Had Yellow Lens

09/07/2010

Question:

When looking into sunlight, I see everything as if I were wearing yellow lens sunglasses. This has been almost 24 hours, no pain, no reddness or any changes I can see. I am unemployed so can`t afford a Dr. visit. I think it might be stress. Please give me an idea. Thank you.

Answer:

You did not tell me your age, but your symptoms might be caused by very early cataracts.

When you see an eye doctor for a comprehensive examination, he or she will be able to give you a definitive diagnosis. In addition, if very early cataracts are the correct diagnosis, you can get special tints and/or coatings put on your glasses to minimize this color distortion.
