Will getting glasses to correct my refractive error stop my headaches from popping up every other week?

Many headaches: There are many causes for headaches; eyeglass needs are only one of them and not a very common cause. Getting glasses is useful simply to see better and for you it would be terrific if the headaches were taken care of as well. You may have to look for other causes if the headaches are not altered b y the eyeglasses.
