Tightness above eyes

Hi I am wearing spectacles for myopia number -1.25 and -1. I experience strain in my eyes near eyebrows. I had clear brain MRI two months back. Strain is absent when there is no spec I am wearing but some small current like waves go through my head. I have checked for the number it is 0.3 increase in cylindrical. Can It cause headache.?

If you are working for more than 6 hrs in the computer, you are likely to develop Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). Always wear glasses when you are reading, writing, typing, texting or any activity which will put your eyes under strain.
Next Steps
You can try Pencil push up exercise. Follow 20-20-20 rule ie., after every 20 minutes of continuour work take a break of 20 seconds or look at something 20 feet away.
Health Tips
Drink plenty of water. and take breaks in between

There might be an over correction and thats causing strain a better way would be to put drops and check your number properly.
MRI was not warranted.
