I've noticed, over the last couple of weeks especially, that when I'm around sources of light, the sun, street/house lights, it feels like my eyes are burning and my eyes water severely it gets to the point where I have to keep my eyes closed to stop the feeling. I've read a few things that all point to it being hypersensitivity to light but it's at the point where it's stopping me from working at school because of the migraines that I get whilst trying to keep my eyes open. When I can cope with the pain caused by the light my vision becomes colourless, however when there is low levels of Light my eyesight is perfect and so is my night vision, infact I can see aswell in the dark as I can in low, tolerable levels of light. I'm only 14 nearly 15 years old so I can see no reason why my eyesight should be suffering. Also just as a note when I look at light I can see the spectrum coming off of the source. As I mentioned early it's affecting my everyday life and also my school life. I thought I'd consult the Internet before I contact my GP as the previous two times I have been he took blood from me for no apparent reason (reasons for visits where just check ups). Any help would be apreciated as i can't find anyone else suffering with my symptoms on the Internet. Thanks

Thanks sorry forgot to mention that I also suffer from intense itching feeling when exposed to sunlight or shop lights for a prolonged period of time. Again any help will be great thanks.
