Do I need glasses if I have daily headaches, eye pain, and difficulty focusing when reading?

Most likely: If your problem is only during reading, try getting over the counter reading glasses and see if it makes a difference. You can get head aches and eye pain if you are straining to read without glasses. If that doesn't help, you need to see an eye doc.

Start with eye exam: Your symptoms suggest perhaps you're having visual changes, although it may be that the headaches are primary, since pain of any kind makes life in general more difficult. Start by ruling out a physical explanation--eye exam, general physical. If those are normal, consider stress, anxiety, & depression, all of which can produce these kinds of physical symptoms and are highly treatable.

Yes unusual: Glasses should not elicit head pain. To b certain that your prescription is correct, have your eye doc reevaluate your vision. Sometimes an adjustment may help alleviate eye strain. A motility exam is also important to make sure you are able to move your eyes correctly when reading. Some people cannot do this as effectively (convergence insufficiency or excess) which would feel blurry ; uncomfort.

General health?: Sometimes vision changes can be caused by high or low blood sugar - it is important to be tested for diabetes. Also, sometimes thyroid disease can cause eye changes. Try to avoid too much caffeine and concentrated sugars and see if that helps. Also, it is common in the 40's for the lenses of the eyes to lose the ability to change focus, so I would recommend another eye exam.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician, preferably by an ophthalmologist.
Wish you good health!
