Halos around objects at night
« on: May 16, 2014, 12:50:51 AM »
As I was driving home tonight in the dark I noticed the white lines on the road looked double and so did the road signs. I thought maybe I had something in my eye and tried to blink it out but the double vision halos were still there. I have never noticed this before and it really freaked me out. This only seems to happen when I look at a bright reflecting object against a dark background.

Here is a picture of exactly how the doubled lines and road signs looked to me.

I've had this as long as I can remember. You're totally fine. When I try to explain it to others they look at me like I'm an idiot. There's actually a name for it if you're compelled to search around. Benign, any way. You're good.

I saw an ad the other night for tinted glasses created to reduce those nighttime effects - since it's a sudden change perhaps see the eye doctor to make sure you don't need something like a new prescription, but changes in night vision are normal as we get older.

Seems like you need glasses or need another prescription.  Without glasses if I look at something like a Christmas tree with lights all I see are HUGE round lights overlapping one another.   Here, this is basically what it would look like (the lights would even be bigger and more overlapped actually), so as you see, the worse your eyes are the bigger the halo is.  (I hope the picture comes out, I see nothing here now)
Go for an eye exam  :happy0151:  nothing serious.

I've had this for a long time. I wear glasses for it at night.
