Hi doctor,

I am a 26 year old male, who weighs 240 lbs and I am 6.3 feet tall. My eyes are extremely sensitive to neon green, and it is so severe that I develop physical discomfort and loss of visual acuity when exposed to large amounts of it. Why is this?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Staring at lights causes bleaching of retinal receptors momentarily, so later we see an opposite colored spot. But this happens with all colors and is not specific to neons.
  • Also, sometimes a little dryness or allergic condition of the eye can cause intolerance to bright light. You can use lubricating drops like Systane ultra, after consulting your doctor.
  • But again, it is not color specific but intensity specific. Avoid staring at neon greens if it troubles you. And do not worry, as no permanent damage is expected.
