The Visual Factor in Headaches

Visual health plays a significant role in headaches. Specific visual issues can trigger or exacerbate these painful episodes for many people. Some common visual factors contributing to headaches include:

  • Eye Strain:
    Prolonged reading, computer use, or other visually demanding tasks can strain the eye muscles, leading to headaches.
  • Unresolved Vision Problems:
    Undiagnosed or untreated vision problems, such as astigmatism or uncorrected refractive errors, can cause eye strain, contributing to headaches.
  • Binocular Vision Issues:
    Eye teaming, convergence, or focusing problems can lead to visual discomfort and headache symptoms.
  • Light Sensitivity:
    Sensitivity to light, known as photophobia, can trigger headaches in some individuals.
  • Digital Eye Strain:
    The increasing use of digital devices has led to a rise in digital eye strain, characterized by headaches and eye discomfort.

How Can Vision Therapy Help with Headaches?

Vision therapy can be a game-changer for people struggling with debilitating headaches. By addressing underlying visual challenges, vision therapy aims to alleviate head pain triggers and improve overall visual comfort. Here's how vision therapy can help:

  • Eye Muscle Strengthening:
    Vision therapy exercises can strengthen the eye muscles, reducing eye strain during visually demanding tasks and diminishing the likelihood of headaches.
  • Correcting Vision Problems:
    Vision therapy can address refractive errors and other vision problems, ensuring that the eyes work together effectively, minimizing headache triggers.

My husband and I have visited many many eyecare places and Laurie Family Eyecare was the tops. Exam... was professional and accurate. The team of technicians and staff were incredibly helpful and was very accurate with our selections. Prices were so much lower then we have paid elsewhere. When we went to pickup our purchases they were even better then we could have imagined. Doctor Brad is kind, and so professional.
