Medication-induced photosensitivity is an abnormal sensitiveness to natural or unnatural light as a result of a side effect from a prescribed medication. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory drugs have been known to cause photosensitivity. When this happens, normal light conditions become overbearing and irritable, and can induce headaches, pain, and other symptoms. Wearing sunglasses can reduce the side effects of medication-induced photosensitivity by subduing the light that enters the eye.
Like photosensitivity, photophobia is an acute sensitivity to normal light conditions, only photophobia is not induced by medications. It is usually a symptom of another disease or infection. Patients that have photophobia typically experience moderate discomfort to severe pain in average light situations. Sunglasses ease the pain and discomfort caused by photophobia by lessening the amount of sunlight that reaches the eyes.
