I have a headache everyday and get a lot of migraines. My vision use to be perfect, but now I have to wear glasses or contacts to even try to to understand what I'm looking at. My optometrist knew right away that I have severe migraines the first yime I saw her. She said the nerves strain from the headache/migraine pain and worsens your eyesight. It can also make your eyes dry and itchy. If you haven't had your eyes checked I recommend that you do. You May need glasses to help you or a stronger prescription if you already have glasses.

My eyes have gotten increasingly dry, and I also use eye drops as needed. I sometimes have auras where I see silvery circles that get increasingly larger until it's difficult to see. These are usually associated with migraine headaches but not so in my case. At any rate eye problems are definitely a possible component of fibromyalgia. I'd still get your eyes checked to rule out any other possible cause.

My eyes have gotten extremely dry recently and have gotten really bad. Eye dr told me fibro affects the front part of the eyes.

I have had two eye problems so far that needed drops or ointments for dry eye. Make sure to get your eyes checked annually.
