Yes, I have to wear sunglasses and headlights at night do bother me too. I don't know if this is typical for everyone with icthyosis that affects their eyelids, but I have been told by several optometrists that my eyes don't focus as quickly as a normal eye should, and this is probably a result of my exposed eyelids. I've also been told that my astigamtism changes as my skin dries around my eyelids, therefore correcting it completely has never been possible.
I am female, and was born in 1972 with Lamellar Ichthyosis.
