Is there any point in seeing an ophthalmologist to rule out any visual problems for someone with ASD...?

DD currently avoids daylight, wears sunhats, etc...

Not sure what else I can do to make her comfortable?

I'm not sure what more help I can offer my daughter..,

What support can I give her aside from sunglasses and hats to reduce the horrors that light induces - she doesn't like playing outside and this prevents her playing with other children / leaving the house / participating in sport / eating outside with the rest of the family...

She don't wear glasses / hoods / hats at school as she doesn't want to look different... sad

Anyone have any ideas?

Me and ds (both autistic) have strong sensory aversions, light is a big problem. A long fringe can help to filter if she won't do sunglasses, peaked/brimmed hats. Careful seat placement in class so she's not facing windows. At home put up a gazebo/parasols in thread garden so she can have shade but not feel different.

How old is she?
