Hello doctor,

My right eye appears blurry but only in sunlight and I see my eyelashes blurring my vision. I can read clearly with both my eyes and can also watch TV and normal activity while indoors. But during day time in bright light, I cannot see clearly with my right eye. I am 43, male. My eyesight has been myopic with both eyes at -1.5.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The symptom that you are suffering from is referred to as hemeralopia, this symptom can be caused due to a number of different conditions. The most common mechanism of such a blurring involves a central corneal opacity or cataract obstructing central light rays when the pupils are constricted in bright light. I can tell you that most of such causes are treatable and can be picked up quite easily on a simple eye exam. So, I suggest that you visit an ophthalmologist. In case you need any further information, please send me a scanned copy of your doctors reports. I will do my best to help.
