In brief: Headaches

An eye exam can help confim whether or not you may need glasses.
Eye strain can cause headaches, and can be related to computer use, poor lighting, or other environmental issues. First see what can be easily corrected, including the need for corrective lenses, and see if the headaches improve. In the meantime, you may consider seeing your provider to rule out other causes.
