Eyestrain and Headaches

Contrary to popular conception, the need for glasses or improper glasses is not a leading cause of headaches. Usually, poorly prescribed glasses simply cause blurred vision: your children may remove the glasses or look over them. Eye muscle problems that cause difficulty focusing the eyes together can cause headaches, and glasses that are too strong may induce excessive focusing that can result in headaches.

A complete eye exam, which includes evaluating the eye muscle system; determining the possible need for glasses; an examination of the pupils and optic nerve; and taking a thorough medical history, can be very helpful in pinpointing the cause of headaches. All of these measures can lead to proper treatment and relief from this very common problem.
