Busy Phillips Sunburned Her Eyes


  • Actress Busy Phillips went to the hospital when she couldn't sleep because of sharp eye pain, only to discover she had sunburned her eyes at a photo shoot.

  • The condition, photokeratitis, is also known as snow blindness, arc eye, and welder's eye. It occurs when the eye is exposed to UV rays without sufficient protection. It is akin to a sunburn in that symptoms generally don't show up until hours afterward, and it goes away in 24-72 hours. Symptoms include excess tears and pain likened to having sand in your eyes.

  • She seems to have recovered, and is going to discuss it in greater detail on her podcast "We're No Doctors" with Steve Agee.
