Christmas_presents_1.jpgGood vision is often taken for granted by those who have it. But if you suffer from poor vision, you know the hassle that coincides with not being able to see clearly. Poor vision leads to headaches and eye strain. This holiday season, give someone you love the gift of sight.


A side effect of poor vision is headaches. When you have trouble seeing, you tend to squint in order to improve your sight. This causes your eye muscles to overwork themselves, leading to headaches. Some other specific vision conditions that cause headaches include:

  • Astigmatism
  • Hyperopia
  • Presbyopia
  • Glaucoma

Eye Strain

As mentioned above, not being able to see clearly causes your eyes to become overworked. In addition to headaches, this often leads to eye strain. While eye strain is not a serious condition, it can be quite bothersome for those who experience it on a regular basis. Some signs that you might suffer from eye strain include:

  • Eye soreness
  • Blurry vision
  • Dryness of the eyes
  • Mild tearing
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Double vision
