I'm sensitive to light though sunlight isn't really an issue for me. Sunglasses are a simple, socially acceptable solution (and it's better for your eyes anyway). I'm way more bothered by indoor lights, especially fluorescent, they are a huge problem for me and literally make me feel sick. They give me headaches, dizziness, fatigue and make me feel disoriented. They also make me squint and blink a lot. The worst part is they are everywhere and the only solution I have is a tinted lens, which is annoying to wear and only makes things somewhat better. I don't understand how other people aren't bothered by them, they make everything look distorted and make me feel like I'm walking around in a big bright fog.

For what it's worth, I'm bothered by them. The "daylight" ones seem a bit better, but the standard ones give me headaches, and, yes, they distort everything.
