Hyperopia (Farsightedness)

Adults and children with uncorrected farsightedness often complain of a frontal headaches or a brow ache. If you are farsighted, you may find it difficult to focus on nearby objects and may feel eye strain, pain around the eyes, or a headache around the forehead. Headaches often occur because you are able to compensate for your farsightedness by subconsciously focusing harder. Working the muscles harder, for prolonged periods, such as computer work, reading or studying, will result in sore, burning, strained eyes, and often a headache. An eye exam is needed to confirm the diagnosis, and spectacles for reading and working on the computer will solve the problem.
