Welcome to HCM!
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. The back side of headache is very diagnostic of incorrect eye number or your glasses have not got proper cylindricals or axis in place, will recommend you to kindly either get it re-examined by your opthalmologist (even your glasses), else also to get your eye tension (called intra-ocular pressure) checked. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks

Thanks for your kind response, first is to get the right numbers for your refractive error and if wearing glasses is a concern you can always substitute with lenses or lasek surgery. If you have no further clarifications, will request you to kindly close the query and rate it. Thanks
