Why Are My New Eyeglasses Giving Me a Headache?

A headache from your new glasses may indicate strained muscles, ill-fitting frames, or an incorrect prescription. A new prescription for

eyeglasses frequently induces headaches. They usually disappear after a few days as your eyes acclimate. Speak with your doctor if, 

after a week, your headaches don't go away, especially if you're feeling queasy or lightheaded. Sometimes the issue can be resolved

with little changes to the lenses or frame. In some cases, a fresh prescription can be required. Perhaps you've

known for a while that you require a new prescription for glasses. Or maybe you were unaware,

until an eye exam revealed it, that your glasses were not providing you with the best vision possible.
