    A friend of mine experienced it once. The cause has been a slightly wrong adjustment. So it might be the case, that the glasses don't really match your needs, which can have multiple reasons: wrong dioptre (±0.25), wrong angles, and whatever plays a role. Headaches can result from the permanent endeavor by your eyes to correct it. I recommend to get a second measurement by another optician.

    We do not give medical advice, and you should not seek medical advice from anonymous internet forums. Consult the professional who issued the prescription for those glasses.
