Why Does Vision Problems Cause Headaches?

The chaotic pressure behind the eyes, the beating of the temples or the slight vibrations at the top of the head, almost no one has suffered from headaches. Many people will take medicine at this time, and some people will wait for the headache to disappear. Many people who suffer from headaches may find their cause if they go to optometrists to test their vision, because when you have poor vision and should wear glasses, you often have headaches.


Especially for hyperopia, the eyes are prone to fatigue, which can lead to headaches. If you read it for a long time or sit in front of your computer, both of these problems will occur at the same time. This is because people with hyperopia are particularly prone to fatigue when the eye is focused on the image. In order to see clearly, the lens has to be adjusted (adapted) frequently. The biggest problem is that many people don't know their farsightedness because their eyes can make up for this visual defect to some extent. Therefore, in order to always be able to see clearly, you need to stay nervous. Over time, your eyes will fatigue, causing headaches, but it is often not thought that this is an eye problem. Although less common, strabismus can also cause headaches. To see clearly, people with strabismus must put too much pressure on their eyes to make their eyes parallel.


Typical symptoms of possible headaches due to hyperopia or mild strabismus tend to occur only after a period of time, especially after a long period of reading or sitting in front of the computer for a long time. If there is a headache, or a double vision or a temporary blur of vision, this may be due to vision problems. A comprehensive eye test at the optometrist can determine if the source of the headache is hyperopia or strabismus.
