  • Nope. I have problems driving at night with headlights coming toward me but no one else seems to have the same issues I do at night in the family and we all have light color eyes and hair

  • My eyes are a deep blue, my husband's are green. Both of us are extremely sensitive to the light.

    I don't think it matters the color of your eye if you are sensitive to the light or not. I think some people are and some aren't.
