Quick, shooting pain in right eye and sensitivity to darkness
Hello and thank you in advance for your time and any info you can give me!

About a month ago, I began to notice that my right eye would have a sharp pain that would shoot back into the middle of my head just after shutting the lights off (only notice at night, just before going to bed).  I have tried standing in a room and flicking the lights on and off, and the pain continues each time I turn the lights off, but decreases after doing it repeatedly.

My only other changes recently have been:

-decreased vision over last couple years.
-recently got glasses for the first time ever (about 6 months ago)
-I have a decent amount of floaters (saw an ophthalmologist several times and OK'ed)
-I had a clean MRI about a year ago (was checked for something else, but did have pan sinus disease).
-one of my pupils is occasionally ever so slightly larger than the other (not by much)

I thank you very much for any info you can offer!

PS - I thought the light bulb icon was fitting for my post.  :o)

This one has me stumped. Perhaps you should call one of the ophthalmologists that checked you in the past.
