Thanks for putting up your query. Such a small refractive power and astigmatism can't give yu such a severe headache as described.  Could be migraine or other causes of headache (neurological/vascular )need to be ruled out. Would advice yu to consult a neurologist or special headache clinics. As for ur eyes, it's always a good thing to start using your best corrected glasses which will relieve your eyestrain and headache to a certain extent. Hope this helps.

1.Your severe headache cannot be explained by such small refractive error. You need complete check up , both ophthalmic and physical. 2. If you have cylinder as refractive error, you have to use it. 3. To improve vision you have were glasses as advised and fo regular eye check up. 4. Your eye doctor can tell you if you have squint after examining you
