Eye pain after flashing lights

When i was at work, in one of our ballrooms at the hotel i work at, some little boy was messing with the lights and his dad went to fix it, in which caused it to start flickering or acting like a strobe, during the brief period, my eyes felt like they were twitching or having muscle spasms, after i left work that afternoon i got on my computer and found that trying to even look at my computer screen for more than ten minutes felt like a task and my eyes have been out of focus and at a slight loss, ive been getting some dizziness, slight neasuea from time to time, head aches as well and some eye strain and pain, this happened last Sunday April 1str, i have an eye appointment on the 16th but still im hoping to find some answers soon to know what the issue is.

Also i know its not good to begin with but before this i was able to sit at the computer for hours with no issues other than of course be it later at night with my eyes getting dry and by that time i would go to sleep, just some added info if that helps, but any advice and information will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

There is no way that type of a situation would injure your eyes or cause needing glasses or dry eyes.

If you are prone to migraines or if you have a usual type of seizure disorder it could trigger such a attack but would not the thing to cause you to develop either of these conditions.
