I have an issue with light sensitivity while being on stage

I am a transgendered m/f performer and I have light sensitivity to spot lights and strobes  where it causes me to stumble or affects my cncentration . In the past , while dancing , and strobes or spot light come on , I  have found myself on the floor because my legs turn to rubber. I have mentioned this to my neurologist when it had happened, we drew blood , and have had tess d all the tests have come back negative for seizure activity. While on stage, I lip sync to songs  and what happens while being on stage, I seto e concentration and have flash memory losses that cause me to end up out of sync .  I cannot wear sunglasses while in pageants. Being on stage is something I really enjoy doing as it suppliments my income , Doing this helps me pay bills .   I have heard about contacts for light sensitivity. Would this be an answr to my problems?

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include chronic eye infections, inflammations, refractive errors, increased eye pressure/ glaucoma, cataract, retinal related causes such as detachment, neurological causes etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an ophthalmologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Certain individuals have a neurological issue when the retina is exposed to certain lights, especially flashing lights. This evaluated by a test apparatus what flashes various lights at different frequencies, durations and parts of the spectrum. When sensitivity is disclosed, the tester can use various colored eyeglasses, or sometimes polarized lenses to see if these will stop the problem.
