It is a common misconception that you only need to visit your eye doctor for annual check-ups or eye diseases. Have you ever considered that your recurring headaches could also be a good reason to consult your optometrist? If you’re experiencing frequent headaches and the typical remedies don’t seem to have much positive impact, then you should consider having your eyes tested! A large percentage of headaches are caused by visual problems.
There are a variety of eye problems that can cause headaches. These include squinting, eye stress and overworking, internal pressure and swelling, and blurred vision. These types of headaches usually arise at the front of the head, above the nose, and can radiate around the eyes. If these headache symptoms sound familiar to you, contact us to make an appointment. Our doctors will conduct an evaluation of your symptoms and a thorough exam to pinpoint the cause and help resolve your vision-related headaches.
