HCV Treatment Sensitivity to Fluorescent Lights?
SInce taking Pegasys, I've been very sensitive to light.

I saw the recent "Holy Photosensitivity!" posting, but my situation is somewhat different.

Fluorescent lights are intolerable! I even have to wear a ball cap during conference room meetings to shield my eyes from the overhead fluorescent lights.

In addition, when I'm inside my house or office, the horizontal pattern of open window BLINDS on a sunny day quickly gives me a headache when I'm looking towards the window.

I've had ophthalmological exams and there are no abnormalities in my eyes that can be attributed to this symptom.

Are you sensitive to fluorescent lights and open horizontal window blinds while on treatment?

Cheers, GB

I read something about ultraviolet light being able to activate the internal or systemic manifestations of lupus in some people.  Since interferon can cause lupus and you seem to be super sensitive to ultraviolet lights I would be extra careful.  By that I mean wear non-reflective clothing, dark glasses, sun block, hats, etc.
