Can you tell me is there any link between slight loss of balance and a problem with my eyes? My balance becomes worse when in bright shops. This first happened a few weeks and while its nowhere near as bad now I still feel my balance is off in a bright area.

Generally there is no connection between eyes and balance problems. It is still worth having an eye test to see if there is any underlying eye or vision issues, but true balance problems are usually to do with the inner ear.
