Acute Eye pain

Whenever I have cold, I cannot bear light especially traffic lights. My only option then is to lie down in dark for an hour at least.

Hi. it is photophobia. Most cases of photophobia can be managed using home remedies or lifestyle changes; however, some more severe instances may require medical treatment or input from a medical professional. Avoiding sunlight, closing the eyes and wearing tinted glasses can help manage light sensitivity due to a short-term condition. Additionally, vitamin B2 may help reverse eye sensitivity as can certain foods including wolfberries. Carotene in carrots and vitamin A also support eye health and may help manage light sensitivity. Vitamin E and l-carnosine are additional supplements that help treat more pervasive eye conditions.
