It started out of the blue. My eyes began feeling gritty and scratchy then grew to the point that pain was across my forehead, cheeks and jaw. My vision worsened to the point where I could no longer focus or read for long. Any trip outdoors meant wearing dark sunglasses and wide-brimmed hats. Driving was uncomfortable with the sun and glare making it hard to keep my eyes open, let alone focus on the road ahead. Night time driving was impossible.
