    "Dim light disease" is a misperception that results from abnormality
    within the visual cortex of the brain. Symptoms (equal and bilateral)

    1. False perception of dimness of light; normally bright light (e.g.
    the sun) is peceived as MUCH dimmer. The day sky at 12:00 noon can
    appears as bright as a 4-watt night-lamp would appear to the normal

    2. Ability to perceive color and images with greater clarity as light
    dims; colors and images can are best perceived in the absense of light.
    The brighter the light the less clear images and colors are seen.

    Pretty terrifying disease!!! Especially the dimness!!!!!!!
