    Yes, of course contact lenses can cause headache. You should know that it is easy for you to have eye strains when you wear the contact lenses for the first time or have wrong prescription. And then eye strains can lead to long term effects . For example, it can put stress on the eye muscles and the facial and scalp muscles, causing pain and headache. And what is worse, it can lead to making your vision become worse. So to relieve your symptoms, you should pay more attention to your eyes. For example, you can drop some eye drops on your eyes. Besides, controlling the time you use eyes and the good position and lighting are also essential. But I think if you try those more often, this uncomfortable feeling will just disappear. Besides, even you have tried those many times, you still can not be accustomed to them, maybe you should not wear them and have a test on your eyes. So that you can make sure what happened to them.
