    I've posted here in the past on a problem I get rarely with vision in
    my left eye.

    In brief here is the problem: Seldom my left eye seems like it become
    more senative to light. Very sensative. In fact, while this happens
    brighter light objects (like lights, TV's, computer screens) seem
    intense an with a blur or aura and other objects seem dimmer because
    my eye appears to be compensating for the brighter lights. This only
    seems to last from about a minute to three minutes tops and happens
    anywhere from a couple of times a month to maybe every couple of
    months. Other times are more intense than others, the more intense
    the longer it lasts, the less intense the shorter. During this time I
    have no other symptoms except maybe a little anxiety because it makes
    me nervous as I don't know what the heck is going on. This has been
    happening on and off for over a year and a half. Seems to happen more
    often in colder weather if that makes any sense at all. The last few
    times it's happened I've noticed it FAR less intense than the first
    couple of times it happened... almost like it's getting less as time
    goes on.

    I've been to my eye doctor, he diolated my eyes, I had a full exam and
    everything appears to be perfect. I have some floaters, nothing
    major, I've had them for 5+ years, maybe small new ones from time to
    time. I am slightly color blind... I've been that way forever. I'm
    33 years old..

    I talked to my GP on this and he said more than likely it's just a
    stress related problem, since I appear to have no other symptoms with
    this. I do have a stressful job with a lot of deadlinse and I
    communte an hour each way to work, I'm on call 24x7... etc.

    I thought maybe this might be related to Caffine intake, so I cut that
    down. I thought maybe it had to do with Asprin, but I cut that out

    Is this just something I should live with? Or should I look elsewhere
    for advise, help. I mean it only bothers me when it happens, but in
    the right situation could become annoying. I need to know if anyone
    else out there knows of a problem like this if it's just something
    I'll overcome or something I should be concerned with a bigger
