Oh wow

On my tablet I use a program called Dimly whenever I have a headache because my headaches come often with sensitivity to light and sound. Well apparently the one I had last night was bad enough that I had the screen so dim that this morning I didn't recognize the first time that I had woken the tablet up because I could barely see even when I noticed it was on. I had to shake the tablet to reset Dimly so I could see the screen!

Sounds a little like a kind of blindness that featured in a book I read. I think it was called day blindness, and the discovery that one of the characters was day-blind (only blind in certain lightings, could see well around sunset and at night) was a major plot point. (Basically, they were lost in the dark, and only he could see.)

I'm not sure if it's got a name, but my eye condition only affects the optic nerve. On the flip end of things, I can't see at night to go outside-- can't even see traffic lights all that well. I've dealt with this for as long as I can remember.

Nope. What you described doesn't sound the same. My eye condition affects the optic nerve only. I can't drive, or even see traffic lights too well to get around independently. I have to feel and listen my way through the world.
