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: 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.

What is the treatment for severe headaches?

asprin It depends on what is causing the headaches (I'm focusing on the "severe" part). If it's stress, relaxation techniques should help, maybe some muscle relaxants which you need to get from your doctor. If it's a migrane, you may need something a little more powerful and for that you'll also need to see a doctor.

What is astigmatism?

Astigmatism is blurred vision caused by an irregularly shaped cornea. Astigmatism is when the cornea of the eye is shaped like a rugby ball rather than being spherical. It causes the eye to have two focal points rather than one and can lead to strain and headaches if uncorrected. Astigmatism is the 'Cylinder' value in a prescription. Around 70% of people who wear spectacles have astigmatism. It can also be corrected with toric contact lenses and laser eye surgery. People with severe astigmatism may experience double vision if it not corrected. Astigmatism can indeed worsen with time, as the eye grows and changes. There is nothing you can do to prevent this change and it will only require a change to the prescription in your glasses in order to correct your vision. It is also possible for the astigmatism to go away. It's when the eyeball is not perfectly round.
