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.

I am not new in the area, but had not ventured out to find eye care since moving to my area. I found... trinity eye care through someone else, and decided to give it a try. They are extremely thorough, up-to-date on their technology that they use, and immensely informative. I am so happy that I was able to find Dr. Youngblood and enjoyed working with for my eye care.

I’ve been a long time patient of Dr. Pang’s at Trinity Eye Care. I’ve had years of wonderful e... xperiences. Today was my first time seeing Dr. Youngblood and I’m so happy to say that she was amazing too! It’s such a great feeling knowing that no matter who I see I will be taken care of in the best way. I’ve been a patient since 2010 and I will always be one!! Love the Trinity Eye Care team!

Professional, courteous and friendly staff. There is virtually no waiting time. I have already refer... red one person to this office, a second one is possible in the near future.

Not only are Dr. Pang and Mrs. Pang so incredibly kind, but they and the whole staff (shout out to M... ike and Kristina as well!) take the time to truly care and understand your needs and concerns. I was feeling a bit hopeless with my eyes and struggled to explain what was going on, and it's such a relief that people like Dr. Pang exist. Dr. Pang has been so thorough and meticulous and just all around wonderful, and I'm so fortunate that he is in the area. Coming here has been a real game changer for me and I'm so appreciative to everyone at the office. Again, just thank you so so so much!

Christina at the front made us feel very welcome and helped us through the checkin /checkout process... with professionalism and a constant smile. The office had very advanced machines to test various aspects of my eye health. Dr. Pang was extremely knowledgeable and explained all of the steps to me as well a really listened to my vision challenges to ensure my Rx was perfect for me. Eileen was very knowledgeable about lenses and contacts as well as my insurance coverage. Overall great experience and highly recommend!

Exceptional service
- May. 22, 2023
Been coming here for 3 years and will probably keep on coming until Dr. Pang retires. Everyone is in... credibly personable and remembers details about you even if you only come once a year for your annual check up. Before, I was dealing with undiagnosed vertical heterophoria and couldn’t figure out why I was having constant eye strain and migraines. Dr. Pang and his staff were able to take me in and diagnose me quickly. My migraines have improved significantly since. So glad I found Trinity Eye Care. Special shoutout to Aileen, Dr. Pang’s wife, for having the best taste in eyeglasses and making choosing one a breeze. And another shoutout to Kristina, at the front desk, for making sure the clinic and everything runs smoothly.

I have been with Dr. Pang for over 20 years! I recommend Trinity Eye Care!!
