With severe headaches I have blurry vision and the doctor said it was astigmatism in both eyes does this make sense?

It may be possible that your astigmatism is not very severe, so that you are unconsciously compensating for it, with eyestrain and headache as a result. Sounds like something worth following up on, since you may need just a pair of glasses rather than something invasive or pharmaceutical. Here's an article on it: http://www.kellogg.umich.edu/patientcare/conditions/astigmatism.html Also, "blurry" is a very subjective evaluation for people to make. Some people think they see just fine when they have 20/80 vision and really should be wearing glasses all the time. Other people with a very slight eyeglass prescription think they see horrible and are surprised when the eye doctor doesn't prescribe glasses for them.
