Lol kaykay. I'm nearly famous for my sunglasses! I get so bad I end up w/ migraines (which are thankfully knocked out by tylenol), but its not just the sun for me. Fluorescent lights are worse (which makes dorm life oh so fun!)

Missy, it does make sense that PWS affect more given the nature. I've not done any research at all on it, but i'm sure the messed up blood vessels are at least partly to blame. I wonder if genetics are keyed in as well when PWS are present?

I do know light-sensitivity is at least partially (if not wholly) genetic & eye colour helps determine it too (not saying a dark brown eyed person can't be light sensitive, but they're less likely to be than a [pale] blue eyed one).
