Headaches with glasses. - January 15th 2009, 11:31 AM

I haven't worn them in awhile because I broke them and just got them fixed a few days ago. Everytime I wear them I just get a headache so do I just have to get used them? I only have to use them for reading and TV so I don't where them all the time.

Your prescription may have changed, because you went without them for a bit and so your eyes may have weakened. My prescription changes all the time and it's a nuisance as i'm always having to change glasses.

It takes a while to get used to your glasses, so it may just take some time to get used to them, especially if you're not wearing them all the time. If you've worn them for a while, then your prescription may have changed, and so your eyes will probably be straining.

If you go and have your eyes checked because as said, your prescription may have changed and you could possibly need new ones but also, if you tell them you are experiencing headaches they'll get you to do this extra test thing to see if there is anything causing them besides you needing new glasses.

Re: Headaches with glasses. - January 15th 2009, 11:53 AM

=] this is normal. no worries. i got it when i first got mine for tv/board work, and also when i first got them permanently (my eyesight weakened by a massive 25% - quite scary now im three years older). you'll adjust. if you dont, get it checked out because they may be too strong.

Re: Headaches with glasses. - January 15th 2009, 11:58 AM

I guess, I am getting them rechecked in May and I haven't worn them for quite a few months. The problem is I can't stop squinting when I wear them which makes my headache even worse.

I agree with the others, your prescription had probably changed a little.
You shouldn't wear them as it could make your eyesight worse. If you doubt anything, just go to your doctor and get a simple eye test. Then it might be worth going to the opticians for a more thorough check up.

When I have my glasses off I don't squint. My vision maybe a little less but there's no squinting or headaches involved. Like right now, I can read everything fine without my glasses, it's just more merged together.

You said that you had them fixed a few days ago the others are probably right saying you have to get used to them.
But Im guessing that its the same prescription you had srince May and your eyesight should have changed much in a few days since you broke and got them fixed.
I would go back and have them checked as they may have made a mistake when fixing them (its unlikely as my whole family have worn glasses our whole lives but it has happened to me once)
They can re-check everything and give you the right advise.

If you don't need to squint when you aren't wearing them, your vision may have improved. It happens sometimes.

AssociatedContent has some good information on headaches due to glasses so you can look at see what may be able to help you. Make sure you inform your eye doctor of these developments.

Re: Headaches with glasses. - January 16th 2009, 10:41 AM

My vision is less blurry when I wear the glasses but for some reason I squint when I wear them. Anyway, thank you that did help quite a bit, I'm trying to force myself not to squint since I'm trying to wear them now. I'm kind of getting used to it and the headache isn't as strong as it was yesterday.

Good. It could also be the glare on your glasses or your eyes trying to adjust to the bended lens/light. I used to wear contacts and I had the same trouble when switching back to glasses.

Just wanted to add a little something as that happened to me.
I wear both and alternate between them all the time, that has helped me come to a point where it doesnt make a difference what I use.

I can't really see things far away but when I don't wear my glasses I get a really bad migraine.

I get that too after I havnt worn my glasses for a while. I just have to get use to them... it could also be because you need a new prescription though. After a week or so you find they are still causing you problems then I would get my eyes checked again if i were you.

I think my eyes are getting used to them though, I'm squinting less and less so I guess it's an improvement. Out of curiousity can vision get better? Like if you wear your glasses when needed etc can it improve?

Re: Headaches with glasses. - January 17th 2009, 05:04 AM

vision can most deffo get better, i've been wearing glasses since i was 3 and those were like proper milk bottle thick lenses and now i have normal sized ones and can do stuff like kayaking with out wearing them tho i do get mild headaches i can see fairly good.

i would go get you're eyes checked again i went through a phase when my percription was changing like ever 6 months and you get very bad headaches and eventually you get use to it but it could be doing some major damage to you're eyes wearing lenses stronger than you need

feel free to pm me about anymore info lol

It could be that the glasses are too strong for your eyes.
