I've had a terrible time the last 2 weeks with headaches. They usually come on in the early afternoon and by the end of the day I can hardly see straight. I don't wear glasses but I noticed that after working on the computer or documents and I get up to walk around my distance vision is poor, i.e. things are blurry at a distance but I can see close up just fine.
So I went to my eye doctor who told me that the headaches are caused by my eye muscles working too hard. Fancy way of saying eye strain. He said that as we get older (I'm 42) the eye becomes harder, therefore the eye muscles have to work harder to focus on near or far objects.
He recommended reading glasses to cure the headache problem. Quite honestly, I'm somewhat skeptical. I don't have trouble reading and I'm not sure how getting reading glasses will help with headaches.
I went ahead and got a pair at Target, so here I am typing away with my little readers on and feeling like a goofball.
Anyway my question is has anyone else had this problem? If so, did getting reading glasses work? Inquiring minds want to know.
