I can't stand watching TV with the lights off either. I wear yellow sunglasses all the time when I'm outside, and it really helps. I also wear light ones while I'm on the computer or watching TV.
I can't drive at night at all. I don't get brain fog, so much as my eyes just do funny things. Today I saw a speed limit sign I read "40", then a little later, I went past the exact same sign and I read "30". Weird things like that happen when I drive, so I can't drive much.
