Ruptured AVM: Has anyone dealt with photophobia?
What helps your eyesight? As a result of the photophobia my eyes burn when trying to focus. I have tried the lubricant eye drops and gel solutions. They do help but my eyes still feel the strain.

@avmcbellar Flooding them with systane lubricating drops, UV protected sunglasses, avoidance of bright lights, direct sunlight and blue light. Wearing hats and sunglasses and the hardest one yet….staying off phone/computer or reading. Turn brightness down on screens and take visual breaks. Long breaks with eyes closed and then find a focal point at a distance.
