Sun blindness? Is that a thing? I read the article, but it's a bit light on details.

I'm not sure that's how it works...

Sounds like you'd like some details on light.

The newsman says that later, he developed a burning sensation in his eyes and lost sight for 36 hours.

I'm sorry dude, I was aiming for your hair.

You wouldn't get much out of that with Anderson. The color of his hair matches the color of.. well, nevermind.

Any intense exposure to UV light can lead to photokeratitis. Common causes include welders who have failed to use adequate eye protection such as an appropriate welding helmet or welding goggles. This is termed arc eye, while photokeratitis caused by exposure to sunlight reflected from ice and snow, particularly at elevation, is commonly called snow blindness. It can also occur due to using tanning beds without proper eyewear. Natural sources include bright sunlight reflected from snow or ice or, less commonly, from sea or sand.[3] Fresh snow reflects about 80% of the UV radiation compared to a dry, sandy beach (15%) or sea foam (25%).

He spent too long staring at surfaces that reflect an appreciable amount of UV, in this case the ocean.

I get that on overcast days. Too much UV bouncing around, and I go blind after an hour or so. On the plus side, everything looks eye-searingly awesome on bright sunny days! Trees look like they've been dipped in chrome, and asphalt has an odd glow!

Give me a nice, heavily-cloudy (but dry) day. It's the only time I don't have to wear sunglasses.

/but I've got great nightvision going for me
//which is nice

Sunburned balls. Eyeballs, but balls just the same.

Some medications may affect your vision. I recently started taking Gabapentin for nerve pain in my lower back and one of the (I guess) side effects was light sensitivity. It went away after awhile, though.

So long as we're talking eye maladies, does anyone else tear up (I'm talking "tears streaming down my cheeks") on cold & windy days? If the temp gets under 60ish and the wind gusts up to any significant degree, the waterworks start running overtime.

Yeah, until 360 last night, I did not know it was possible to sunburn your eyeballs.

But thanks to Anderson Cooper, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH TERRIFYING THINGS CAN HAPPEN TO ME EYES GET THE SUN AWAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY

I'm like that, but it might in part be due to me wearing contacts.

I also wear contacts, but cold/wind is the only time I look like the Leave Britney Alone guy.

'I'm not talkin' bout the linen...'

Burned my eyes helping my dad weld when I was a kid. Imagine someone poured about three pounds of sand in your eyes and then ground down on them for hours at a time. Couldn't see jack (or anyone else) for the better part of three days - just gray blobs.

Woke up in the middle of the night - eyes hurt like hell and pretty scared because I couldn't see anything. My Dad's first thought was they were dried out so he went to put Visine in... about an eleventy on the pain-o-meter; really REALLY don't do this. Got some plain saline solution and put a couple drops in every hour or so but the only slight relief was sitting in a dark room and not moving the eyes or lids, and a wet washcloth over my eyes.

/we didn't go to the docs for 'little' stuff.
