It is believed that people who wear prescription glasses have probably experienced headaches when wearing glasses at some point. Sometimes it is with old pairs of glasses, and sometimes it is with new pairs of glasses that have just been cut. You may not be sure why it is happening. Today, Better Vision will explain.
The causes of headaches when wearing glasses can be divided into two main causes: changes in vision or poor quality glasses.
1. Changes in vision
People who have worn the same pair of prescription glasses for a long time may experience headaches when wearing them. This may be a sign that your vision is changing, whether your vision is getting shorter, longer, or more tilted. In addition to headaches, if you start using brighter lights or using more distance to see clearly, it may also be another sign that your vision has changed.
2. Poor quality glasses
If your vision has not changed but you still experience headaches when wearing prescription glasses, it may be due to the fact that the glasses are not of good quality. There are three important points to note, including:
- The power of the lens
Incorrectly measured vision can cause the lens to not match the actual vision, or the use of an inappropriate lens power, such as choosing the right eye power, can make it difficult for the eyes to adjust because they are too clear, which can cause eye strain, discomfort, and headaches.
- The center of the lens
In the case of severe astigmatism, if the center of the lens is not aligned with the focal point of the eye, it can also cause headaches and dizziness when wearing prescription glasses.
- The fitting of the glasses
Tight fitting of the glasses can cause the nose and ears to be pressed, which can lead to headaches. If the glasses are too loose, the focal point will not be correct and the glasses will be crooked, which can also cause headaches.
As you can see, the accuracy of vision measurement and the quality of lens fitting all affect the quality of life while wearing glasses. If you start to have problems seeing with prescription glasses, you should consult a vision specialist like BVAX Master at Better Vision.
