Eye and Vision Care
Adult amblyopia related headaches
I am 28 years old and since last two years i have been suffering from trerrible forehead pressure, spaced-out feeling just above my nose between the eyes. Concentrating on any work triggers this pressure also. It dull sort of headache present every time. With addition to that i have floaters and zig zag lines as well when i am in bright light specially.
I consult eye doctor he said where corrective lenses this might help with headaches. As it is not corrected by lenses, headaches still lasts.
Are there any specific steroids to overcome this issue?
If a current glasses prescription did not reduce or eliminate your headaches, they are probably being caused by a medical condition.
See your family physician for a specific diagnosis and treatment plan. If he or she cannot find a definite cause for the headaches, you may need to be referred to a headache specialist (a neurologist) for additional testing like CT or MRI scans of the head.
