Eye strain as the cause of headache
Commonest cause of headache is refractive error may it be very small. Hypermetropia and any type of astigmatism if not corrected properly can give mild to severe headache as well as watering from the eyes. Most often, headache patients visit neurologist who advises mri brain which is almost always normal. A patient for headache must get blood pressure checked and visit ophthalmologist to be examined after dilatation of pupil. Quite often, minor refractive errors are only detected when patient or even a child is examined after dilating the pupil. Ophthalmologist can also detect and brain problem by fundus examination. Do not neglect any headache or minor watering of eyes.
