Could be...: Many patients complain of headaches and blurred vision. Blurred vision may cause headaches, but other causes of headaches must be ruled out. See an eye doctor, and get checked for glasses. Then see your regular doctor to check out the headaches, especially if they are increasing in severity, or if you wake up with them.

Most likely not: Most likely you have far sightedness or astigmatism that makes your vision not clear. The stain from your eyes trying to adjust and make the vision clear causes the headaches.
