Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

What is your question?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

my eyes has a bright light in both. I am not complaining. Glad the light is there. I just wonder where does this bright com from??


That is a wonderful question.

From a medical point of view, the light that you see in a healthy eye is a reflection from a well formed tear film, a clear cornea, the crystalline lens and a soft glow emanating from the retina and choroid.

As a retina surgeon with over two decades of experience, I believe that the eye is a window into the soul....perhaps this is what the glow is from. :)

In any event, you are fortunate to have a glow in your my mind it is a sign of health on many levels.

Does this make sense to you?
