It’s 2:00 pm. You’ve still got loads of work to do before the day is over. But a pretty hefty migraine has set in. Maybe you pushed through the first couple of times it happened, but this time your vision is being affected. Could your eye problems be linked to your headaches?
Vision is a pivotal part of your perception and, as such, is integrally linked to your nervous system. Changes in one affect the other, so eye problems might cause the migraines and headaches you’re experiencing. Here are three types of eye problems that may be linked to headaches and migraines.
Other common eye problems that might also be linked to your headaches are astigmatism, far and short-sightedness, and even glaucoma. Even if you’ve already scheduled an appointment with your primary care physician to discuss your headaches or migraines, it’s a good idea to also see your eye doctor. In an eye exam, your eye doctor can identify and help treat these underlying eye conditions.
Check the out-of-pocket cost headache off your list of things to worry about by using your VSP Individual Vision Insurance Plan. If you don’t have vision insurance, find out how VSP can help you save on your next visit to the eye doctor.
