    A friend of mine in Dallas has had serious problems with glare for the
    past year and no one she has gone to can help her.

    Even with sunglasses she has much trouble driving during the day
    because of the sensitivity to light. Her eyes are constantly blinking
    and she is pretty much feeling her way around.

    At night she doesn't suffer nearly as much, unless there are a lot of
    approaching headlights coming her way.

    She has been to several regular doctors and some opthamologists. They
    can't find anything physically wrong with her eyes.

    I need to add that she is bipolar and is on at least half a dozen
    prescription medicines for this and other disorders. She thinks this
    may be responsible for the trouble.

    Some people think she may be going blind. My biggest fear is that if
    nothing is done then she could needlessly suffer additional eye damage
    or even go blind because she hasn't seen the right kind of doctor.
    Can anyone help us?

    Has she discussed her visual problems with the psychiatrist who has
    prescribed her medications? If the drugs are causing the problems,
    there may be another drug available that she could try that may cause
    a visual disturbance.

    My daughter took many different drugs for depression, anxiety, etc.
    and had visual side effects. She learned to live with them over time,
    and now that she is off of all of the medications, all of the symptoms
    have disappeared.

    Your friend can look up known side effects of the drugs that she takes
    on the internet, or you can look them up for her.

    If the side effects are affecting her quality of life, she needs to
    communicate this to her doctors.

    I wish her well.
