Glasses are too heavy and causing headaches

Question

I think my glasses are too heavy and causing me to have headaches, which I have never suffered before. I only use them for driving.

The only thing you can do is get another pair which are lighter and more comfortable. You need to speak to the opticians where you got them from.
