Yes: Headaches can be very complicated to address. So we try to start with the simple and obvious causes. If glasses were recommended, try them out and see what happens with the headache. If no improvement, see your primary. At least you will have improved your vision.

Possibly: Strain on eyes can definitely cause headaches. Contact your optometrist.
