Headache due to glasses

I have been wearing glasses since last 10 years, but offlate I am not able to wear them (didn't change recently, but it's slightly mis-aligned) - it causes headache everytime I wear them (I am fine if I don't wear them). Can frame mis-alignment lead to daily headache? Which one would be the right doctor to consult - a normal ophthalmologist or some specialist like neuro-opthalmogy expert?

Yes misalignment of frame can cause strain n headache.. You can recheck your glass power and make a new frame.. You can visit general opthalmologist for that.. You can also plan laser surgery if you don't want glasses

Hello, I understand you pain. But I would like to tell you that both ophthalmologist and neurologist are both specialists and have their significance. Coming to your problem misalignment of frame may not cause headache but increase in power may cause headache because of using low power spects so kindly go consult a ophthalmologist for your assistance. Thank you
