Headache due to new Prescription???
What is the location of headache due to stronger prescription? I have changed my glasses 2 weeks ago. New prescription was -0.5D spherical stronger for both eyes. But, after wearing glasses for long hours, I start to feel headache at particular points:- 1. Centre of forehead (Exactly between eye-brows), and 2. Sides of forehead I have realised this for 3-5 days. Can it be due to prescription issues? It's already 2 weeks. What should be done? Kindly guide.

The symptoms sound typically to be due to come from of refractive error. You need to get your glasses checked, especially if there's s cylindrical number. Change in axis of cylinder may cause such symptoms...
Next Steps
Go back to previous pair of glasses, if available. Get the axis confirmed and matches with previous prescription, if available.
