Visual overstimulation- a problem keeping my eyes open

I have always had a problem keeping my eyes open-staying awake-while driving . Recently I attended a performance of Cirque de Soliel, and had the exact same feeling and consequence. My optometrist had suggested that while driving perhaps my eyes were being too over stimulated and my brain just shuts down. During the cirque performance there was a lot of visual effects as well as many performers. I don't have this problem driving at night, only during daylight hours, and I am not tired. Has anyone else had similar problems? Did you get a diagnosis?
