- Sensitivity To Light And Difficulty Seeing At Night
Much like squinting, sensitivity to light is often a clear sign of a need to get your eyes checked, as is difficulty seeing road signs and other similar objects at night. If you experience flashes of light, you should seek help immediately (within 24 hours).
If your eyelids begin to swell, become itchy or red, you may have an infection. If the whites of your eyes begin to gradually turn pink or if you experience a discharge, these are also signs of infection.
