A recent study has concluded that there is no direct connection between vision correction and consistent headaches and migraines among children. The study was unveiled during the 116th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology among a panel of esteemed medical experts.
The result of the study was that 75 percent of all tested children did not have any significant changes in vision quality despite undergoing several tests and examinations. Kids who were already wearing glasses before the tests were not prescribed with new eyewear despite the ensuing headaches. Furthermore, it was found out that most of the headaches experienced would eventually disappear over time. Not one patient experienced any vision impairment.
Dr. Zachary Roth, M. D. led the team of researchers and stated that the study was concluded mainly to “help reassure parents that in most cases their children’s headaches are not related to vision or eye problems, and that most headaches will clear up in time.” An estimated 158 kids under the age of 18 were part of the study.
