Maybe: If you feel your glasses are associated with causing the headaches then yes, remove them and get your refraction checked.

I have myopia i realized that when i wear glasses at evening(night) get headache.i dont have pain when wearin at afternoon why do this happen ?
Check again: Get another exam and be sure to tell the doctor your problem. The glasses need to be changed a little. During the day, a smaller pupil blocks rays of light that need to be bent more. That allows you to get by with a prescription that is not perfect. With a larger pupil in dim light, more rays of light enter. The imperfection in the Rx becomes more noticeable. ...Read more
Many possibilities: First you need to insure that the prescription is indeed correct. Sometimes if you have a lot of astigmatism, only partial correction is accepted, with more correction being put into the prescription in incremental steps. High amounts of myopia or hyperopia and astigmatism will cause a distorted perception of your environment. It may take a while to get adjusted to these types of prescriptions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I dont want to wear my glasses cause there not helping. I reason i got them was because my eyes hurt, not my vision. Can i stop wearing them.
Your choice: The job of eyeglasses is to improve the clarity of vision; not to relieve pain. If the glasses do not improve your vision then they are not helping. If you goal was to relieve pain, then a cause for the pain must be sought and it is almost certainly not uncorrected vision. For your next stop, see an ophthalmologist for a better diagnosis. ...Read more
Glasses issue: Depending on the power of the lens, and the index of refraction, the glasses can be extra thick for high power prescriptions and cause refractive distortions in the periphery. Also, for example an aphakic spectacles (someone with no lens) has a lot of these pincushion or barrel effects which are diminished by aphakic contacts since the lens is closer to the refracting surface. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have worn contacts for 18 years- my eyes are fine when i wear them, but have dry eyes when i don't. If i stop wearing them, will my eyes get better?
Sensitivity : It is not uncommon to have increased sensitivity to dryness after taking the contacts out of your eyes. There needs to be a period of readjustment (weeks). Use artificial tears like Refresh™ several times daily to help with dryness. Warm eyelid compresses once daily & 2000mg of fish oil supplement may help too. In contact lens issues, it's always a good idea to have your eyes checked too. ...Read more
What to do if I do not need glasses, because i had my eyes tested. Why am i getting bad headaches then?
Not always: To safely drive day or night, you should probably wear your glasses, as you have noted. Any other activity, or at least those which do not involve rapidly-moving vehicles, sports, projectiles, people, or objects, you can probably skip it; medically speaking, wearing glasses for nearsighted correction makes no difference at your age. You just won't see things very clearly from a distance. ...Read more
I have astigmatism and I am nearsighted. I wear glasses for astigmatism but I still have it when wearing them. Is that normal or do I need new glasses?
Binocular vision: The prescription maybe wrong, or you may have a problem with the alignment of the eyes. There are several possibilities. See your eye doctor to find out. The fact that you wear bifocals at your age suggests that some binocular (using the two eyes together) disorder exists. ...Read more
