The Visual Factor in Headaches

Visual health plays a significant role in headaches. Specific visual issues can trigger or exacerbate these painful episodes for many people. Some common visual factors contributing to headaches include:

  • Eye Strain:
    Prolonged reading, computer use, or other visually demanding tasks can strain the eye muscles, leading to headaches.
  • Unresolved Vision Problems:
    Undiagnosed or untreated vision problems, such as astigmatism or uncorrected refractive errors, can cause eye strain, contributing to headaches.
  • Binocular Vision Issues:
    Eye teaming, convergence, or focusing problems can lead to visual discomfort and headache symptoms.
  • Light Sensitivity:
    Sensitivity to light, known as photophobia, can trigger headaches in some individuals.
  • Digital Eye Strain:
    The increasing use of digital devices has led to a rise in digital eye strain, characterized by headaches and eye discomfort.

How Can Vision Therapy Help with Headaches?

Vision therapy can be a game-changer for people struggling with debilitating headaches. By addressing underlying visual challenges, vision therapy aims to alleviate head pain triggers and improve overall visual comfort. Here's how vision therapy can help:

  • Eye Muscle Strengthening:
    Vision therapy exercises can strengthen the eye muscles, reducing eye strain during visually demanding tasks and diminishing the likelihood of headaches.
  • Correcting Vision Problems:
    Vision therapy can address refractive errors and other vision problems, ensuring that the eyes work together effectively, minimizing headache triggers.

Everyone is amazing. It was super easy to get an appointment and the lady that scheduled us was nice... and efficient. The secretary, when we went in, was super nice as well very informative also. The tech (not sure her official title, but the lady that ran all the machines) was amazing! My son is 6 and she explained everything so well so that he would understand what to do. The Dr also has a talent for getting young children to understand him. He was also extremely nice and patient and took time to explain things.

I had 3 pairs of Cartier optucal glasses I needed lens updates for. It was impossible to find a shop... who could drill lens for my rimless frames. They did a great job and at half the cost of my usual shop in Chicago. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I will be back for sure!

Scratched my eye on vacation, which resulted in a scratched cornea. I have no previous eye condition... s yet finding this provider, getting an appointment was smooth. Wait time was short and the actual appointment was quick. Dr. Loriane Payan was very sweet, spoke to me as if we were friends and I felt comfortable asking questions. Would recommend to anyone!

I’ve always received friendly customer service and professional support. I like the fact that I ca... n ask questions without feeling mindless, or feel I’ve been rushed out as if I’m some type of number or a quota to be filled. Dr. Jose is the best.

First of all, where has this place been all my life? If it wasn’t for my mom’s recommendation, t... hen I wouldn’t have had any idea about how good this place is. The whole experience was nothing short of incredible. Dr. Lorraine Payan is definitely a very good eye doctor, from the instant she walked in, she was very personable and very friendly. She was extremely thorough and knowledgeable about the health of my eyes. I’m glad to have found this place and that they take my insurance which saved me a lot of money. You can bet that I will return for my next visit, as this is my new place to get my eyes checked. Thank you.

Amazing place. Very caring and understanding individuals. Dr. Jose Payan is an incredible eye doctor... . Very down to earth and does not mind educating his patients during the treatment process. I wish I would’ve taken a picture of my eyes before & after my infection. Finding a trusty eye doctor or eye care center can be difficult, so I truly feel blessed that I stumbled upon this place. I will recommend this place to anyone. You can tell how much they care about the work they do, and I hope each employee there knows how appreciated they are.
