Hello, I've a question I'm hoping someone can help me with. I had a hemangioma blocking the majority of my left eye for roughly five years before they were removed. I was talking to my mother recently about books, and I asked how she could read in direct light, because when I try the black print turns an almost glowing red tint where I view it directly and fades as my eyes move across the words making it nearly impossible to read with a lamp or sunlight near me. I was under the impression this is normal, and apparently it, well, isn't. Any ideas on why there's a tint, and how to fix it?
