Visual Stress Headaches
Visual dysfunctions will often lead to headaches. When the visual system is overworked, it can lead to stress, which results in a mild to severe frontal headache. It can happen while reading, working at a computer, or other sustained near task—such as writing, drawing or crafts. These headaches can be due to poor eye-teaming, eye focusing, or visual tracking skills.
At Indiana Vision Development Center, PC, we treat the problem at the source with lifelong results. By correcting the visual dysfunction, the visual system is no longer overworked during near work tasks, like reading. Without the added stress of the task itself, reading and computer work can be done with ease for extended periods without headaches or tired eyes.
