Ds 13 is getting headaches a lot and is now saying his eyes are hurting quite often. They seem to be sensitive to the light. Not sure whether we should visit GP first or optician to get his eyes tested. His vision does seem to be ok.

Is there a noticeable trigger to the headaches?

When I first started having eye problems my headaches got worse when I was doing school work or concentrating on something for a long time. Went to the opticians and it turned out I needed glasses.

I would certainly start with the opticians.
