It depends if I use a higher watt and did not notice it when I changed the bulb. Are ou using a different watt or bulb type? You know is it a soft light bulb vrs a natural light bulb vrs a standard bulb.

Not really. I try and turn the light off if I can before I change it. I'd rather not get zapped

o no i didnt mean while changing the light bulb i make sure to turn off the light switch before i change it too, thats too bright

what i do mean is whenever u have a fresh lightbulb in and u are sitting there just doing whatever it is that u do (t.v, tcs, ect. lol) me i was on the computer and the light kept bothering my eyes really bad! I am so sorry I guess I should have explained that better

Hope you feel better soon!

I said no because I have never noticed that at all..perhaps they do but I have never put it together with changing the bulb

I will try to notice next time, what an interesting project

Maybe you used a brighter bulb this time? I've never noticed that happening to me when I changed a bulb.
