Eye and Vision Care

Sunlight Vision is as if I Had Yellow Lens



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.


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.
