Photosensitive Epilepsy

Do flashing lights ever cause you to have a seizure? Has the light from your computer or television screen made you feel strange or confused? Does the sunlight flickering through the trees bother you? Do video games make you feel funny? Have you blanked out and then awakened not realizing what happened? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, there is a possibility that you have photosensitive epilepsy.

A photosensitive response occurs in some individuals who are diagnosed with epilepsy. Patients with photosensitive epilepsy may have seizures or unusual feelings that are triggered by flashing emergency vehicles, flickering of lights, rapidly changing patterns or images (such as television, video and games), ceiling fans, or shopping in certain stores.

New advances in eyeglasses and contact lenses are now available to filter certain wavelengths of light that cause or “Trigger” a seizure. Many patients report a decrease or complete elimination. Patients have been seizure free for several months to years and enjoying a normal life.
