I am diabetic type 1 and recent tests suggest my eyes are "healthy". This is via optician and also the NHS annual check with the drops (although the nhs test is probably 9 months old).
However I have been having trouble with my varifocals such that I end up with headaches that need ibuprofen if I wear them for more than a few hours. These headaches go away fairly quickly if I take them off to read books for example and I do not get headaches if I use single distance lenses for computer use.
The opticians ran 3 eyesight tests over about 3 months and tweaked the prescription but in my opinion the tweaks were too small to account for any headaches and indeed they haven't gone away if I use the varifocals.
Even though I also have a pair of distance glasses now I really only use these for TV as I feel I need varying focus glasses when out and about.
The opticians seem to have run out of options and to be honest don't see why I should have problems with varifocals. To some extent this seems to be confirmed by internet searches where I can't find anyone else with this issue.
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on the problem or could suggest alternatives?
