Most people don't realize this, but the amount of blue light that some fluorescents and all white and blue LEDS put out can damage eyes. Those most at risk are people that already have something wrong with their eyes - including nearsightedness.
My guess is that his eyes are just more sensitive to it and probably sunlight as well.
It seems the common cause for everyone so far is squinting.
Those dealing with it - try a cold washcloth over your eyes if they feel strained, or you could try heat to relax the muscles. Give your eyes a break from bright lights (like a computer screen) and relax.
