I don't have an exact answer, sorry. Just some thoughts here... True photophobia (pain with bright like) can be a hallmark of Iritis or Uveitis. You should have your eye checked. Are they painful with bright indoor lighting? If not, then you probably don't have photophobia. Photophobia can also be associated with headache conditions, sometimes you might not even have a headache.
