    Drug intoxication can also bring about the following: photopsia, photophobia, snowy vision, transient amblyopia or scotomata, yellow halos around lights (xanthopsia) and decreased[] Drug intoxication also may cause the following: Snowy vision Photophobia Photopsia Decreased visual acuity Yellow halos around lights (xanthopsia) Transient amblyopia or scotomata[] […] include fatigue, drowsiness, general muscle weakness, and visual disturbances such as blurring of vision, yellow-green or white halos around visual images, light flashes, photophobia[]

  • Retinitis

One study showed 54% were asymptomatic.[] In infants, RPE65 retinitis pigmentosa is characterised by severe night blindness and moderate photophobia.[] […] knowledge, based on continued research, indicates that RP is a cellular disease, not a disease of blood circulation. 2 Several complications have been reported, including photophobia[]
