Car Headlights at Night

Postby DryEye » Mon Jan 29, 2007 2:21 am

What would cause car headlights at night to have more of a starburst effect? I am almost 8 months post custom lasik and began noticing this last month.

A deteriorating cornea? maybe?


Everyone in these forums had that issue including me right up front it seemed but I have seen no one without it from the start then it somehow crop up 8 mos later...

A change in starbursting so long after Lasik would indicate your eyes have become drier or you pupils are dilating larger. Medication (such as for a cold) can cause these effects.

No meds. Just saw my corneal specialist a couple of weeks ago. Didn't bring up anything to me, so I have to assume it isn't serious. I am going to get another opinion in a month or so. It seems that lasik is a bit of a moving target. Pupils? Wouldn't all these geniouses that do the surgery be able to figure this sort of stuff out?

Pupil size issues are rather well understood although sometimes debated. You can review our detailed Lasik pupil size article. What you describe is a change 8 months after Lasik that may or may not be related to pupil size. I was just suggesting some possibilities to investigate.

Some car headlights do it more than others?
Perhaps, flourescent kind?
I also notice that LED lights seem to have more starbursting & always have.
