    Well, I'm sure they take care to shield their eyes and be careful around bright, colourful, flashing lights and whatnot. It's like a diabetic on Christmas morning; you be careful with the candy. **shrug**

    Hmmm, pretty interesting question lol.
    I would say sunglasses. If not that then not then just don't look directly at the light.

    My sis has epilepsy and she tries ta limit her exposure as much as she can, but if she does go out, she tries ta do it durin' the day. If she has ta go out at night, she has some1 go wit her and drive her ta wherever she needs ta go, usually. She also doesn' stare directly at the lights, it's difficult ta do, but it actually helps.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    Even for me, driving at night with all the added lights makes my eyes bleed. At least it gives me a pounding headache and strained eyes.
    As far as photosensitive epilepsy, I'd have to say that it must be a little of a drag for people with it. However, over the years the amount of people putting up Christmas lights and decorations have decreased since the 50's. Before, everyone put up lights. Now, one is lucky if more than one house per block has them up.
