    He needs to adapt the the new glasses. This is a common problem. Your doctor may need to decrease the astigmatism and then gradually increase it as he adapts. He should wear the glasses full time. See your doctor if the problem persists after a week or so.

    The most likely problem is that your kids had not got used to wear eyeglasses. You may let your kid insist on wearing it for around a week. If the pain is not gone, please contact his eye doctor to check out whether the prescription is right or not. Hope this helpful.

    Sorry to learn this problem. Firstly, I think you need to make sure whether your son's eyeglasses prescription is right or not. If he wear eyeglasses for myopia that are too strong, he will probably be able to see fine, but his yes will be using a lot more accommodative power than usual and would probably cause eyestain and headaches and might have trouble seeing things close up. Secondly, his headache may also be caused because of his maladjustment like the fish out of water. So he need some more time to get him used to it or you can check up whether the frame is too tight to his head. Hope this helpful.

    Sorry to read you are having problem, in fact, there are many reasons lead to your kid's eye balls feel paining on wearing glasses, such as he had a wrong prescription or Allergies or infections and so on, I am not a eye doctor. You had better go to the glasses store, to do a comprehensive exam, if possible, buy a new pair of glasses for your kid.
