sensitive to light at times.
Sep 8, 2001
HI! Am hiv+, and at times am so sensitive to light and have red eyes at times. I visited an eye doc twice and he told me the first time that am okay, and the second time he didn't tell me anything reasonable and told me to see him after six months. Yet i still feel little pains. can you please let me know what is wrong?

You don't indicate what your CD4 count is, as a reflection of where you are on the HIV spectrum. Later stage HIV infection can have many different eye manifetations.You also don't indicate whether you are taking any HIV meds or other meds that could be causing your symptoms. Finally did you see an optometrist or opthalmologist?
